The Land of Nursery Rhymes


The Snail

I carry my house wherever I go,
Rent and Taxes I pay none whatever
And Iím perfectly sure, though perhaps I am slow,
There are few other people so clever.

Though I dont a first sight seem to have any eyes,
Or nose, or remarkable feature,
When I put out my horns and swell out my size
Youíll confess Iím a beautiful creature.

Like the rest, for my pride, I must pay a high price
And make my self out to thinner,
For if not, a great blackbird swoops down in a trice
And gobbles me up for his dinner.
