Horse Play

Four gallant horses 
galloped forth. 

One was white, one was black, 
one was red, one was brown. 

One had four legs, 
one had three, 
one had two, 
and the fourth had one leg. 

The one-legged horse 
said to the others : 
the time for dance has come, 
sweet friends, 
let's dance on a single hoof ! 

All of them liked the idea, 
and the dance began. 

The four-legged horse fainted outright, 
the three-legged horse slipped and fell, 
the two-legged horse limped to a fall : 
only the one-legged one 
danced on and on.
