A Burdock Clawed My Gown

poem 229

A Burdock clawed my Gown Not Burdock’s blame But mine Who went too near The Burdock’s Den A Bog affronts my shoe What else have Bogs to do The only Trade they know The splashing Men! Ah, pity then! ‘Tis Minnows can despise! The Elephant’s calm eyes Look further on!
