To hold the ship fast where we

The great staff of life on which

Walking amidst his plantations of

And goes without water for many

N stands for a Nabob, a lord of
the East,
Who likes on strong coffee and
sweetmeats to feast.

and wild,
With the strength of a giant --the
sense of a child.

p stands for the Peacock, a bird
very vain
Of feathers he sweeps on the earth
like a train.

Q stands for Quadrille, which the
little ones dance
As well, we all think, as the children
in France.
