Children's Rhyme-Games - Airlie's Green


"Airlie's Green," played by boys and girls alike, has perhaps had its greatest vogue in Strathmore.. A space is set apart for the "green," upon which he, or she, who is "Airlie" takes his, or her, stand. The play begins by the crowd encroaching on the "green,'' when all but "Airlie '' sing:-

I set my fit on Airlie's green,
And Airlie canna tak' me:
I canna get time to steer my brose
For Airlie trying to catch me.

"Airlie's" object is to "tig" one within the boundary. The player touched takes his, or her, place, and the game may proceed thus as long as desired.
