In the game where the following lines are used, one person goes round
inside a ring of children, clapping a cap between his hands. When he
drops it at the foot of any one, that one leaves his position and gives
chase, and is obliged to thread the very same course among the children
till the first is caught. The first then stands with his back towards
the centre of the ring, the one called out takes his place, and thus
they continue till nearly all are "turned."
My hand burns hot, hot, hot,
And whoever I love best, I'll drop this at his foot!
