Hawk and Crow
by Emily Smith

Said the hawk unto the crow one day,
"Oh how can you in mourning stay?"
"I was once in love but I did prove slack
And ever since I wear the black."
"I was once in love but I did prove slack
And ever since I wear the black."

The next to speak was Willie wagtail,
"I was once in love but I did prevail,
I was once in love but I did prevail
And ever since I wag my tail."
I was once in love but I did prevail
And ever since I wag my tail."

Then up and spoke the little brown thrush,
She was sitting in yon holly bush,
"Oh the way to love I heard them say
Is to court all night and to sleep all day."

And the last to speak was Jenny wren,
"Do you know what I'd do if I were a man?
In case that one should wriggle and go
I'd wear two strings all upon my bow."
