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 dye do?"
The jackdaw bids me "go away,"
Cuckoo cries "cuckoo" half the day:
What do the others say?
- Christina Rossetti
