by Christina Georgina Rossetti (1830 - 1894)

Sing me a song
Language: English 
Sing me a song--
  What shall I sing? --
Three merry sisters
  Dancing in a ring,
Light and fleet upon their feet
  As birds upon the wing.

Tell me a tale --
  What shall I tell?
Two mournful sisters,
  And a tolling knell,
Tolling ding and tolling dong,
  Ding dong bell. 

R. Foresman sets lines 1-4
