The Story Of Chicken-licken

from Popular Rhymes And Nursery Tales - NURSEY STORIES





As Chicken-licken went one day to the wood, an acorn fell upon her poor
bald pate, and she thought the sky had fallen. So she said she would go
and tell the king that the sky had fallen. So chicken-licken turned
back, and met Hen-len. "Well, hen-len, where are you going?" And hen-len
said, "I'm going to the wood for some meat." And chicken-licken said,
"Oh! hen-len, don't go, for I was going, and the sky fell upon my poor
bald pate, and I'm going to tell the king." So hen-len turned back with
chicken-licken, and met Cock-lock. "Oh! cock-lock, where are you going?"
And cock-lock said, "I'm going to the wood for some meat." Then hen-len
said, "Oh! cock-lock, don't go, for I was going, and I met
chicken-licken, and chicken-licken had been at the wood, and the sky had
fallen on her poor bald pate, and we are going to tell the king."

So cock-lock turned back, and met Duck-luck. "Well, duck-luck, where are
you going?" And duck-luck said, "I'm going to the wood for some meat."
Then cock-lock said, "Oh! duck-luck, don't go, for I was going, and I
met hen-len, and hen-len met chicken-licken, and chicken-licken had been
at the wood, and the sky had fallen on her poor bald pate, and we are
going to tell the king."

So duck-luck turned back, and met Drake-lake. "Well, drake-lake, where
are you going?" And drake-lake said, "I'm going to the wood for some
meat." Then duck-luck said, "Oh! drake-lake, don't go, for I was going,
and I met cock-lock, and cock-lock met hen-len, and hen-len met
chicken-licken, and chicken-licken had been at the wood, and the sky had
fallen on her poor bald pate, and we are going to tell the king."

So drake-lake turned back, and met Goose-loose. "Well, goose-loose,
where are you going?" And goose-loose said, "I'm going to the wood for
some meat." Then drake-lake said, "Oh! goose-loose, don't go, for I was
going, and I met duck-luck, and duck-luck met cock-lock, and cock-lock
met hen-len, and hen-len met chicken-licken, and chicken-licken had been
at the wood, and the sky had fallen on her poor bald pate, and we are
going to tell the king."

So goose-loose turned back, and met Gander-lander. "Well, gander-lander,
where are you going?" And gander-lander said, "I'm going to the wood for
some meat." Then goose-loose said, "Oh! gander-lander, don't go, for I
was going, and I met drake-lake, and drake-lake met duck-luck, and
duck-luck met cock-lock, and cock-lock met hen-len, and hen-len met
chicken-licken, and chicken-licken had been at the wood, and the sky had
fallen on her poor bald pate, and we are going to tell the king."

So gander-lander turned back, and met Turkey-lurkey. "Well,
turkey-lurkey, where are you going?" And turkey-lurkey said, "I'm going
to the wood for some meat." Then gander-lander said, "Oh! turkey-lurkey,
don't go, for I was going, and I met goose-loose, and goose-loose met
drake-lake, and drake-lake met duck-luck, and duck-luck met cock-lock,
and cock-lock met hen-len, and hen-len met chicken-licken, and
chicken-licken had been at the wood, and the sky had fallen on her poor
bald pate, and we are going to tell the king."

So turkey-lurkey turned back, and walked with gander-lander,
goose-loose, drake-lake, duck-luck, cock-lock, hen-len, and
chicken-licken. And as they were going along, they met Fox-lox. And
fox-lox said, "Where are you going, my pretty maids?" And they said,
"Chicken-licken went to the wood, and the sky fell upon her poor bald
pate, and we are going to tell the king." And fox-lox said, "Come along
with me, and I will show you the way." But fox-lox took them into the
fox's hole, and he and his young ones soon ate up poor chicken-licken,
hen-len, cock-lock, duck-luck, drake-lake, goose-loose, gander-lander,
and turkey-lurkey, and they never saw the king, to tell him that the sky
had fallen!
