"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.
I sent a message to the fish:
I told them 'This is what I wish.'
The little fishes of the sea,
They sent an answer back to me.
(excerpt by Lewis Carroll (1832-1898)
