.......His eyes-how they twinkled!
his dimples how merry!
His cheeks were like roses,
his nose like a cherry!
His droll little mouth
was drawn up like a bow,
and the beard of his chin
was as white as the snow;

The stump of a pipe
he held tight in his teeth,
and the smoke it encircled
his head like a wreath;
He had a broad face
and a little round belly,
That shook when he laughed
like a bowlful of jelly.
