Who turned in her toes,
And hung down her head
Till her knees touched her nose.

Sprinkled with dew,
Pulled in the morning,
And presented to you.

Who looks wondrously wise;
But he’s watching a mouse
With his large round eyes.

With feathers like gold,
Who talks just as much,
And no more, than he’s told.

Who governs the land,
And sits on a throne
Very lofty and grand.

Perched on an oak,
Who, with a gruff voice,
Cries, Croak, croak, croak!

Cropping grass on the lea:
Their owner has marked
On their backs a large D.

Blowing his horn,
Who tells us the news
As we rise in the morn.

Wears an ivory bodkin
On his forehead.

Who eats a great deal,
Devouring a dog
Or a cat at a meal.

Lest robbers or thieves
Good people should meet.

Who, if you don’t know,
Reigned over Persia
A great while ago.

Sailing far out to sea;
If you were on board,
How nice it would be!

Whom you’ve heard of before;
So here ends my rhyme
Till I find you some more.
