The Six Badgers, a new poem that the children of Fingles Wood had to learn by heart during the school holidays, for Irma and Eddy

Six Badgers in the hand, but they have
no wands
SELIGOR'S CASTLE


Hello, it seems ages since I was here in Fingles Wood with Irma and Edna, but let's not waste to much time for I want to show you a wonderful poem that Eddy has the childrem to learn during the summer holidays. I know you'll enjoy it, it's about Badger's Hoorah!!!

THE SIX BADGERS
As I was a-hoeing, a-hoeing my lands
Six badgers came up with six wands in their hands.
They made a ring round me and, bowing, they said:
"Hurry home, Farmer George, for te table is spread!
There's pie in the oven,, there's beef on the plate:
Hurry home, Farmer George, if you would not be late!"
So homeward I went, but could not understand
Why six fine dog-badgers with white wands in hand
Should seek me out hoeing and bow in a ring
And all to inform me so common a thing!

By the late, great Robert Ranke Graves (24 July 1895 - 7 December 1985) was an English poet, translator and novelist. During his long life he produced more than 140 works. Graves' poems, together with his translations and innovative interpretations of the Greek Myths, his memoir of his early life, including his role in the First World War, Good-bye to All That, and his historical study of poetic inspiration, The White Goddess, have never been out of print.
