Little Swiss Clock

    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.
