THE DODO, by                 Poet's Biography
First Line: The dodo used to walk around
Last Line: All in the mu-se-um.
Alternate Author Name(s): Belloc, Joseph Hilaire Pierre Rene
Subject(s): Extinct Animals

The Dodo used to walk around,
And take the sun and air.
The sun yet warms his native ground --
The Dodo is not there!

The voice which used to squawk and squeak
Is now for ever dumb --
Yet may you see his bones and beak
All in the Mu-se-um.
