EENSY BENSEY SPIDER WENT UP THE WATER DRAIN,
DOWN CAME THE RAIN AND WASHED THE SPIDER OUT,
OUT CAME THE SUN AND DRIED UP ALL THE RAIN,
EENSY, BEENSY SPIDER WENT UP THE DRAIN AGAIN.

Submitter comment: AS THE POEM IS RECITED, THE CHILD MOVES HER HANDS
FIRST UPWARD LIKE A WALKING SPIDER. SHE THEN LOWERS HER
HANDS, PALMS OPEN, VERY FAST TO DENOTE THE RAIN FALLING.
SHE THEN FORMS A ROUND CIRCLE WITH HER HANDS TO DENOTE
THE SUN AND THEN AGAIN MOVES HER HANDS LIKE A WALKING
SPIDER FOR THE FINAL LINES.
