The Crocodile


How doth the little crocodile
Improve his shining tail,
And pour the waters of the Nile
On every golden scale!

How cheerfully he seems to grin
How neatly spreads his claws,
And welcomes little fishes in,
With gently smiling jaws!

    child like if your a fish..
    but if a man..

    I like his childlike choice of words while portraying a crocodile-a mystical animal in Egypt, and the immense River Nile. (Report) Reply
