And everyone said, who saw them go,.jpg

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;

All night long they sailed away.jpg

And all night long they sailed away; And when the sun went down,
They whistled and warbled a moony song
To the echoing sound of a coppery gong,
In the shade of the mountains brown.

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