    3. My mother saw a Dancing Bear
    My mother saw a dancing bear
    By the schoolyard, a day in June
    The keeper stood with chain and bar
    And whistle-pipe and played a tune.
    The bruin lifted up its head.
    And lifted up its dusty feet,
    And all the children laughed to see
    It caper in the summer heat.
    They watched as for the Queen it died
    They watched it march. They watched it halt.
    They heard the keeper as he cried,
    "Now, roly-poly! Somersault"
    And then my mother said, there came
    The keeper with a begging-cup,
    The bear with burning coat of fur,
    Shaming the laughter to a stop.
    They paid a penny for the dance,
    But what they saw was not the show;
    Only, in bruin's aching eyes,
    Far-distant forests, and the snow.
