They sailed away in a Sieve, they did, in a Sieve they sailed so fast, With only a beautiful pea-green veil
Tied with a riband by way of a sail
To a small tobacco-pipe mast;
And all night long they sailed away; And when the sun went down,
They whistled and warbled a moony song

And a pound of Rice, and a Cranberry Tart,
And a hive of silvery Bees
