Fit The Eighth
They sought it with thimbles, they sought it with care ;
They pursued it with forks and hope ; They threatened its life with a railway-share :
They charmed it with smiles and soap.
They shuddered to think that the chase might fail,
And the Beaver, excited at last, Went bounding along on the tip of its tail,
For the daylight was nearly past.
