FIVE geese deploy mysteriously.
Onward proudly with flagstaffs, Hearses with silver bugles, Bushels of plum-blossoms dropping For ten mystic web-feet— Each his own drum-major, Each charged with the honor Of the ancient goose nation, Each with a nose-length surpassing The nose-lengths of rival nations.
Somberly, slowly, unimpeachably, Five geese deploy mysteriously.
