Poem by Christina Georgina Rossetti


* * *


What does the donkey bray about?
What does the pig grunt through his snout?
What does the goose mean by a hiss?
Oh, Nurse, if you can tell me this,
I'll give you such a kiss.
The cockatoo calls cockatoo,
The magpie chatters how d'ye do?
The jackdaw bids me go away,
Cuckoo cries cuckoo half the day:
What do the others say?
