Dave Wood's Book Report, April 15, 2009

Email

'They roused him with muffins -- they roused him with ice --

They roused him with mustard and cress --

They roused him with jam and judicious advice --

They set him conundrums to guess.

When at length he sat up and was able to speak

His sad story he offered to tell:

And the Bellman cried, "Silence! Not even a shriek!"

And excitedly tingled his bell.

There was silence supreme! Not a shriek, not a scream
