School Lore

Every day shuffles answers

no question likes to hurry.

Therefore animals talk freedom.


Tall trees have a long way to blow.

In the park, birds sing for nothing.

Any road is a ribbon for writing on.


Mermaids fly the art of oceans.

Every field-mouse has a nose

making tigers look dangerous.


Most spiders like to spin and spin,

hence their days are tidy.

Though they turn corners at an angle,

they travel with their eyes open.
