Little Swiss Clock

Print Share
    The tiny Swiss clock
    That hangs on my wall
    Ticks always so softly
    I can’t hear it at all.
    But inside that clock
    A little Swiss bird
    Each morning awakes
    And so loudly is heard,
    I can’t stay asleep
    Or I know I’ll be late,
    For soon the school bus
    Will swing past our gate.
