By Dan Beard

"It" is the wolf, and the boy who is to play this part is selected by one of the numerous methods of counting out. The sheep select on of their number for a shepherdboy. When this is arranged, the wolf departs to some place of concealment, a short distance from the spot selected for home, or the fold.

When the wolf has concealed himself he sets up a most dismal howling, and the shepherd-boy, followed by his sheep, seeks to discover the wolf, and all the sheep cry "Bah! Bah!" As soon as the shepherd-boy discovers the wolf he announces the fact with these words, "I spy a wolf!" Immediately he and all his sheep take to their heels, closely pursued by the wolf. If the wolf catches or tags a sheep or the shepherd before he reaches the fold, the one caught is wolf for the next game.

In Brooklyn the shepherd or any one of the sheep who spies the wolf, cries "Stand!" At the cry of "Stand" all, wolf, sheep, and shepherd, remain stationary until the shepherd counts ten. As the word "ten" is pronounced the spell is broken, and there is a wild race for the fold.
