Poems of Home: III. Fun for Little Folk
“There was a young lady of Niger”
Anonymous
 
THERE was a young lady of Niger
Who smiled as she rode on a Tiger;
  They came back from the ride
  With the lady inside,
And the smile on the face of the Tiger.
*        *        *        *        *
        5
There was a young maid who said, “Why
Can’t I look in my ear with my eye?
  If I give my mind to it,
  I ’m sure I can do it—
You never can tell till you try.”        10
