Chinese New Year!

Illustration:  Chinese New Year from Kids of Many Colors

“New Year’s Day, China”

Pitter, patter, through the street,

Cling-a-ling, long;

Fire crackers, children,

And lantern song.

February’s rather late –

Bim-a-bam, bin! –

But the bells are bringing

The new year in.

Kids of Many Colors

By Grace Duffie Boylan and Ike Morgan

Hurst and Company Publishers: New York. 1909.

    1. Yes, this entire book, “Kids of Many Colors,” is filled with ethnocentric musings. The Chinese New Year is “late” – and the sing-song language!
