The Bad Child's Book of Beasts by  Hilaire Belloc

The Dodo


[Illustration]

The Dodo used to walk around,

And take the sun and air.


[Illustration]

The Sun yet warms his native ground—

The Dodo is not there!


[Illustration]

The voice which used to squawk and squeak

Is now for ever dumb—


[Illustration]

Yet may you see his bones and beak

All in the Mu-se-um.
