Humpty Dumpty's Song

In winter, when the fields are white,
I sing this song for your delight -

In spring, when woods are getting green,
I'll try and tell you what I mean.

In summer, when the days are long,
Perhaps you'll understand the song:

In autumn, when the leaves are brown,
Take pen and ink, and write it down.

From "Through the Looking-Glass" Lewis Carroll, 1832-1898

one of my all time favourite books.

I told them "This is what I wish."
The little fishes of the sea,
They sent an answer back to me.
the little fishes' answer was
"We cannot do it, Sir, because--"

and it goes on....
