IV

 

Said the Duck, As I sate on the rocks,

I have thought over that completely,

And I bought four pairs of worsted socks

Which fit my web-feet neatly.

And to keep out the cold I’ve bought a cloak,

And every day a cigar I’ll smoke,

All to follow my own dear true

Love of a Kangaroo!

Said the Kangaroo, I’m ready!

All in the moonlight pale;

But to balance me well, dear Duck, sit steady!

And quite at the end of my tail!

So away they went with a hop and a bound,

And they hopped the whole world three times

Round;

And who so happy,- O who,

As the Duck and the Kangaroo?
