The Crocodile

How doth the little crocodile
Improve his shining tail,
And pour the waters of the Nile
On every golden scale!

How cheerfully he seems to grin
How neatly spreads his claws,
And welcomes little fishes in,
With gently smiling jaws!

    child like if your a fish..
    but if a man..
    would swim away...
    the others gone....
    his heart..
    she knew and...
    he has flown as..
    herons flew..
    across the Nile...iip

    I like his childlike choice of words while portraying a crocodile-a mystical animal in Egypt, and the immense River Nile.

    Smiling little crocodile shines well in Nile river!
