Game: This is played by an uneven number of children. They divide into couples and, hand in hand (or arm in arm) form a ring, the odd child (the Miller) standing in the center. All sing the verse, walking around, suggesting the mill wheel. At the end of the verse every inside partner steps quicly forward and catches the outside partner of the pair in front. While this is going on, however, the Miller tries to seize one of the outside ring and get a partner for him or herself. This enables him to join the ring. The one child left without a partner becomes the Miller and the game recommences.
