G was a goat Who was spotted with brown: When he did not lie still He walked up and down. Good little goat! H was a hat Which was all on one side; Its crown was too high, And its brim was too wide. Oh, what a hat! I was some ice So white and so nice, But which nobody tasted; And so it was wasted. All that good ice! J was a jug, So pretty and white, With fresh water in it At morning and night. Nice little jug! K was a kite Which flew out of sight, Above houses so high, Quite into the sky. Fly away, kite! L was a lily, So white and so sweet! To see it and smell it Was quite a nice treat. Beautiful lily! M was a man, Who walked round and round; And he wore a long coat That came down to the ground. Funny old man!
