But, you neednÃÂ¢Ã¢âÂ¬Ã¢âÂ¢ t bleat so loud: ThereÃÂ¢Ã¢âÂ¬Ã¢âÂ¢ s none within three miles to listen to you, But me and Peter and Michael; and weÃÂ¢Ã¢âÂ¬Ã¢âÂ¢ re not deaf: So donÃÂ¢Ã¢âÂ¬Ã¢âÂ¢ t go straining your voice, old nightingale, Or splitting your wheezy bellows.- "Krindlesyke", Wilfrid Wilson Gibson.
There was such a surprise; In her hurry the oven she'd forgotten to heat, So out jumped the lamb, and forgetting to bleat, It said, " Mary, my dear, if there's no gooseberry jam, I can lunch very well on potatoes and ham."- "Rhymes Old and New", M.E.S. Wright.
