round robin quotes - 10 of
The fireside for the cricket,
The wheatstack for the mouse, ...
Alas! in winter, dead and dark,
Where can poor Robin go?
The night is darkening round me,
The wild winds coldly blow; ...
I dreaded that first robin so,
But he is mastered now,
At the round earth's imagined corners, blow
Your trumpets, angels, and arise, arise ...
Laid out for death, let thy last kindness be
With leaves and moss-work for to cover me: ...
But I'll do my best a gude wife ay to be,
For auld Robin Gray he is kind unto me.
Who killed Cock Robin?
I, said the sparrow, With my bow and arrow, I killed Cock Robin.
Either I mistake your shape and making quite,
Or else you are that shrewd and knavish sprite Called Robin Goodfellow.
I'll put a girdle round about the earth
In forty minutes.
