Minnie and Winnie


Minnie and Winnie
Slept in a shell.
Sleep, little ladies!
And they slept well.

Pink was the shell within,
Silver without;
Sounds of the great sea
Wandered about.

Sleep, little ladies,
Wake not soon!
Echo on echo
Does to the moon.

Two bright stars
Peeped into the shell.
What were they dreaming of?
Who could tell?

Started a green linnet
Out of the croft;
Wake, little ladies,
The sun is aloft!
