Wynken, Blynken, and Nod

Wynken, Blynken, and Nod one night sailed off in a wooden shoe, sailed on a river of crystal light, into a sea of dew. "Where are you going, and what do you wish?" The old moon asked the three. "We have come to fish for the herring fish that live in this beautiful sea; nets of silver and gold have we!" Said Wynken, Blynken, and Nod.

Posted above is just the first verse of the full poem, but ever since I was a lil girl I've been intrigued with this classic Dutch poem.. I want to memorize the whole thing and be able to recite it to my kids before bedtime one day :)
