The Story of Humpty Dumpty – Part 2

„Indeed you shall," said the Farmer's Wife, „what is more I shall wrap you up in a piece of spotted calico, so that you will have a nice colored dress; you will come out, looking as bright as an Easter Egg."

So she tied him up in a gay new rag, and dropped him into the copper kettle of boiling water that was an the hearth.

lt was pretty hot for Humpty at first, but he soon got used to it, and was happy, for he felt himself getting harder every minute.

He did not have to stay in the water long, before he was quite well done, and as hard as a brick all the way through; so, untying the rag, he jumped out of the kettle as tough and as bright as any hard boiled Egg.

The calico had marked him from head to foot with big, bright, red spots, he was as gaudy as a circus Clown, and as nimble and merry as one.




The Farmer's Wife shook with laughter to see the pranks of the little fellow, for he frolicked and frisked about from table to chair, and mantelpiece; he would fall from the shelf to the floor, just to show how hard he was; and after thanking the good woman most politely, for the service she had done him, he walked out into the sunshine, an the clothes-line, like a rope dancer, to see the wide, wide world.
