THE BURIAL OF THE ROBIN
175
3. Bury him nobly-next to the donkey;                  4. Bury him softly- white wool around him,
Fetch the old banner, and wave it about;               Kiss his poor feathers the first kiss and last.
Bury him deeply-think of the monkey:                   Tell his poor widow kind friends have found him.
Shallow his grave, and the dogs got him out. Plant his poor grave with whatever grows fast.
5. Farewell, sweet singer', dead in thy beauty,
Silent through summer, though other birds sing Bury him, comrades, in pitiful duty, Muffle the dinner-bell, mournfully ring.
