moved by music.

At such a little tail behind,

Have gathered people to us more and more
But Pilgrim-manned the Mayflower in a dream
Has been her anxious convoy in to shore.

And Many Children hang on her Apron, crawl at her
 Feet, snuggle at her Breasts.

When investigating murders
In other people's flats.

And they always appear
Bare-headed!

When but a little child --
Supposed they visited remote
Or settled Regions wild --
But did because they died
A Fact withheld the little child --

Which distressed all the people of Ealing.
