No One At Home

No one at home in the hen house, 

And no one at home in the  barn,

Old Brindle has gone to the neighbors

To borrow a skein of brown yarn,

To borrow yarn for the darning

Of socks for her spotted calf,

The little rollicking rascal

Has never enough by half.

And speckled is down by the willow,

Washing her chicks in the lake,

While old daddy cockle is lying,

Abed with a bad toothache.
