Lock the Dairy Door

"Lock the dairy door!

Lock the dairy door!"

Oh, hark, the cock is crowing proudly,

And all the hens are cackling loudly:

"Chickle! chackle, chee," they cry,

"We haven't got the key," they cry,

"Chickle, chackle, chee! Oh, dear,

Wherever can it be!" they cry.


— Celia Thaxter
