Kids Poems » Cock-A-Doodle

I KNOW a lovely dicky-bird,
A cock-a-doodle-doo ; -
My father and my mother
And my sister know it too.

It struts about so gaily,
And it is brave and strong ;
And when it crows, it is a crow,
Both very loud and long.

Oh,"Cock-a-doodle-doo," it crows,
And cock-a-doodle won't
Leave off its cock-a-doodling,
When mother dear cries "Don't !"
