Today's poem

There are a myriad of poems adapting nursery rhymes. For example, John Hollander’s ‘The See-Saw’ is created with gorgeous combination of the following nursery rhyme and Hegel’s quote (trans. A. V. Miller).  (   (p. 116))

See Saw Margery Daw
from Nursery Rhymes

See Saw Margery Daw
Johnny shall have a new master
He shall have but a penny a day
Because he can’t work any faster.
