Coloring Page of "Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush"

      The above coloring sheet is from "Walter Crane's Painting Book" for children.  I have also included the small color image below by Crane for coloring reference. These were also included in the original coloring book when it was first published in 1880. I have posted the Mother Goose Rhyme that I believe Crane to have made the illustration for. These rhymes were well known in the late 1800s but are no longer chanted by the school children of today.
The most common modern version of the rhyme is:
Here we go round the mulberry bush,
The mulberry bush,
The mulberry bush.
Here we go round the mulberry bush
So early in the morning.
