Thomas Hood Quotes

    Tim Turpin

    Tim Turpin he was gravel-blind,
    And ne'er had seen the skies :
    For Nature, when his head was made,
    Forgot to dot his eyes.

    So, like a Christmas pedagogue,
    Poor Tim was forced to do -
    Look out for pupils; for he had
    A vacancy for two.
