Grandpa Pencil's Little Rhymes

The Yak
Hilaire Belloc



The Yak
Hilaire Belloc

 

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 Tartar who dwells on the plains of Thibet
(A desolate region of snow)
Has for centuries made it a nursery 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.
(I cannot be positive which)


Hilaire Belloc
