Poetry Friday: How Doth the Little Crocodile

Art by me, Lorie Ann Grover, 2012
How's this for Poetry Friday? Thanks, Lewis Carroll!

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!

Thanks! It's oil pastel, Rena.
