The Bubblyjock
By Hugh MacDiarmid

Click here to listen to this in Real Audio read by Caitlin Wallace, age 7


Itís hauf like a bird and hauf like a bogle

And juist stands in the sun there and bouks.

Itís a wunder its heid disna burst

The way itís aye raxin its chouks.


Syne it twists its neck like a serpent

But canna get oot a richt note

For the bubblyjock swallowed the bagpipes

And the blether stuck in its throat.
