f-p02

“The Plover and the Clover can be told apart with ease,
By paying close attention to the habits of the Bees,
For en-to-molo-gists aver, the Bee can be in Clover,
While ety-molo-gists concur, there is no B in Plover.”

From “How to Tell the Birds from the Flowers: A Manual of Flornithology for Beginners” (1907)
