ON THE WALL TOP.
SO high – so high on the wall we run,
The nearer the sky – why, the nearer the sun.
If you give me one penny, I’ll give you two,
For that’s the way good neighbours do. This vintage storybook image and poem, On The Wall Top (spelling and grammar as it is in the book), is from Marigold Garden by Kate Greenaway, circa 1892.
