As a friend to the children
Commend me the Yak.
You will find it exactly the thing
It will carry and fetch
You can Ride on its back
Or lead it about with a string.
The Tarter who dwells on the plains of Thibet
(A desolate region of snow)
Has for centuries made it a pet,
And surely the Tartar should know!
Then tell your papa where the Yak can be got,
And if he is awfully rich
He will buy you the creature—
Or else he will not.
