by Christina Georgina Rossetti (1830 - 1894)

The peacock has a score of eyes
Language: English 
The peacock has a score of eyes,
With which he cannot see;
The cod-fish has a silent sound,
However that may be;

No dandelions tell the time,
Although they turn to clocks;
Cat's-cradle does not hold the cat,
Nor foxglove fit the fox.
