    • "The Four Friends", by A.A. Milne.

      Ernest was an elephant, a great big fellow,
      Leonard was a lion with a six foot tail,
      George was a goat, and his beard was yellow,
      And James was a very small snail.

      Leonard had a stall, and a great big strong one,
      Earnest had a manger, and its walls were thick,
      George found a pen, but I think it was the wrong one,
      And James sat down on a brick.

      Ernest started trumpeting, and cracked his manger,
      Leonard started roaring, and shivered his stall,
      James gave a huffle of a snail in danger
      And nobody heard him at all.

      Ernest started trumpeting and raised such a rumpus,
      Leonard started roaring and trying to kick,
      James went on a journey with the goat’s new compass
      And he reached the end of his brick.

      Ernest was an elephant and very well intentioned,
      Leonard was a lion with a brave new tail,
      George was a goat, as I think I have mentioned,
      but James was only a snail.
