Angry? She Cut Off Their Tails With A Carving Knife!

Illustration: "THREE BLIND MICE."  Mother Goose’s Nursery Rhymes.

“THREE BLIND MICE.”

Three Blind Mice,

See how they run!

They all ran after the farmer’s wife,

Who cut off their tails with a carving knife;

Did ever you hear such a thing in your life

As three blind mice?

Mother Goose’s Nursery Rhymes.

McLoughlin Brothers: New York. Ca 1900.

    1. Good Question – I never thought of this!
      In this illustration the mice look very angry and vengeful about losing their tails – I think this farmer’s wife isn’t going to get a chance to do much but RUN!
