The dog has cleaned his bowl
and his reward is a biscuit,
which I put in his month
like 4 priest ofainy host.

I can’t bear that trusting face!
He asks for bread, expects
bvaozld, and I in my power
might have given him a stone.

Bow-wow, says the dog,
Mew, new buys the cat,
Grunt, grant says the boy,
And squeak goes the rat.
Tu, why says the oul,
Quuck gmoik, says the duck,
And what the cuckoo says you know.

Life the hound
Comes at a bound
Either to rend me
Or to befieud me.

The round’s intent
Till he has sprang
At mf bare hand
With teeth and tongue.
Meanwhile I stowcl
And wait the event.
