Description

Two little girls wearing the same mobcaps and green dresses stand side by side in a garden, facing the viewer and looking down while stamping the ground dotted with marigold flowers. This version of the rhyme goes as follows:

Draw a pail of water,
For my lady’s daughter;
My fathers a king, and my mother’s a queen,
My two little sisters are dressed in green,
Stamping grass and parsley,
Marigold leaves and daisies.
One rush! two rush!
Pray thee, fine lady, come under my bush.
