Children's Rhyme-Games - The Craw


The Craw admits of a good deal of lively exercise, involving, as Dr. Chambers remarks, no more than a reasonable portion of violence. One is selected to be craw. He sits down upon the ground. and he and another boy then lay hold of the two ends of a long strap or twisted handkerchief. The latter also takes into his right hand another hard-twisted handkerchief, called the Cout, and runs round the craw, and with the cout defends him against the attack of the other boys, who, with similar coots, use all their agility to get a slap at the craw. But, before beginning, the guard of the craw must cry out:-

Ane, twa. three—mv craw's free.

And the first whom he strikes becomes craw, the former craw then becoming guard. When the guard wants respite. he must cry:—

Ane, twa, three--my craws no free.
