MONDAY'S CHILD (Famous Nursery Rhyme )

Monday's child is fair of face,
Tuesday's child is full of grace ,
Wednesday's child is full of woe, 
Thursday's child has far to go,
Friday's child is loving and giving,
Saturday's child works hard for living.
And the child that is born on the sabbath day
Is bonny and blithe, and good and gay .

  3. I remember much of this from my school days - not that it was as well presented then. From a bonny and blithe and gay blogger though it has to be said that the version of the rhyme I know has me as bonny and blithe, GOOD and gay
