Schott's Miscellany 14 October 2009

Dwight D. Eisenhower born (1890)


One old ox opening oysters.
Two toads totally tired trying to trot to Tewkesbury.
Three tame tigers taking tea.
Four fat friars fishing for frogs.
Five fairies finding fireflies.
Six soldiers shooting snipe.
Seven salmon sailing in Solway.
Eight elegant engineers eating excellent eggs.
Nine nimble noblemen nibbling nonpareils.
Ten tall tinkers tasting tamarinds.
Eleven electors eating early endive.
Twelve tremendous tale-bearers telling truth.

True goodness springs from a man's own heart. All men are born good.
Confucius (551-479 BCE)
