The Dodo

The Bad Child's Book Of Beasts pg 33.jpg

The Dodo used

to walk around,



The Bad Child's Book Of Beasts pg 34.jpg

And take the sun and air.
The sun yet warms his native ground—

The Dodo is not there!


The Bad Child's Book Of Beasts pg 35.jpg

The voice which used to squawk and squeak
Is now for ever dumb—

The Bad Child's Book Of Beasts pg 36.jpg

Yet may you see his bones and beak
All in the Mu-se-um.
