SAFETY FIRST - Catherine Maria Fanshawe Poems


Poems » catherine maria fanshawe » safety first


The Deer don't dine
  When a Wolf's about,
And the Porcupine
  Sticks his quill-points out.

The Minks won't tell
  Where they hide or sleep,
And the Lynx looks well
  Where he means to leap.

The Mice lie snug
  When the Hoot Owls flit,
And the Lightning Bug
  Keeps his tail-light lit.
