THE COCK AND HEN (Popular Tales from the Norse) By SIR GEORGE WEBBE DASENT

(In this tale the notes of the Cock and Hen must be imitated.)

Hen—You promise me shoes year after year, year after year, and yet I get no shoes!

Cock—You shall have them, never fear! Henny penny!

Hen—I lay egg after egg, egg after egg, and yet I go about barefoot!

Cock—Well, take your eggs, and be off to the tryst, and buy yourself shoes, and don’t go any longer barefoot!
