IF you want to see all sorts of wonderful things, Stuffed crocodiles, mammoths, and sloths,
Hairy ducks with four feet, and fishes with wings, P'at beetles, and strange spotted moths;
And enormous winged bulls with long beards, carved in stone,
Dug up from Assyria's sand, And old blackened mummies as dry as a bone,
Discovered in Egypt's lone land,
And beautiful statues from Greece and from Rome,
And other fine things without end,— You will find you can see half the world here at home,
If a day in this place you will spend.
