They decreed him: hailed the kingling: ha!
Hateful! but this Thor
Failed a weak lamb's baa.

can be heard with its plaintive small baa,
and the frogs all croak from puddle and pond,
as if star now were singing to star.

Climbed his horse and poked out his lance,
You timidly forced yourself back into your fold
And baaed there quietly and without hope.

(Baa, baa, black sheep! — whose fault but your own
That you're here on the western prairie, herding the sheep alone, —
Here in a wide and lonely land, by the stranger's fold, —
Oh, rise and go to your father; he growing weary and old.)
"The Prairie Shepherd" by Cicely Fox Smith
