The Secret

We have a secret, just we three,

The robin, and I, and the sweet cherry tree;

The bird told the tree, and the tree told me,

And nobody knows it but just we three.

But of course, the robin knows best,
Because he built the - I shan't tell the rest;

And laid the four little - something - in it.
I'm afraid I shall tell it every minute.

But if the tree and the robin don't peep,
I'll try my best the secret to keep;

Though I know when the little birds fly about,

Then the whole secret will be out!
