The Bad Child's Book of Beasts by  Hilaire Belloc





The Dodo used to walk around,

And take the sun and air.


The Sun yet warms his native ground—

The Dodo is not there!


The voice which used to squawk and squeak

Is now for ever dumb—


Yet may you see his bones and beak

All in the Mu-se-um.
