Treasure Island

Beatrix Potter

(28 July 1866 – 22 December 1943 / London / England)

This pig went to market


THIS pig went to market;
This pig stayed at home;

This pig had a bit of meat;
And this pig had none;

This little pig cried
Wee! wee! wee!
I can't find my way home.

So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
