'12 | Young Ladies
|Exercícios de Desenho | Drawing exercises|
There was a Young Lady of Portugal
Whose ideas were excessively nautical:
She climbed up a tree,
To examine the sea,
But declared she would never leave
There was a Young Lady whose bonnet,
Came untied when the birds sate upon it;
But she said: "I don't care!
All the birds in the air
Are welcome to sit on my bonnet!"
