"The Cackling Hen"

       
   
1.
"Good day, my biddy hen, good day!
What does your grand air mean?
You step about so proudly,
You cackle out so loudly;
Have you been made a queen?
Have you been made a queen?"
       
    2. "Look. look, look, look!" said biddy hen;
"Look in my nest, I beg.
I step about so proudly,
I cackle out so loudly
Because I have laid an egg!
Because I have laid an egg!"
