|Edward Lear||trans. Timothy Adès|
There was a Young Girl of Majorca, |
Whose aunt was a very fast walker;
She walked seventy miles, and leaped fifteen stiles,
Which astonished that Girl of Majorca.
tu dena vadis milia septies,|
ter quinque sepes tu superevolas,
matertera, admiranda nepti:
quin Baliaris hians stupescit.
