The Yak

As a friend to the children commend me the yak
You will find it exactly the thing;
It will carry and fetch, you can ride on its back
Or lead it about with a string.

The Tartar who dwells on the plains of Tibet
(A desolate region of snow)
Has for centuries made it a nursery pet,
And surely the Tartar should know!

Then tell you papa where the yak can be got,
And if he is awfully rich
Will buy you the creature--or else he will not,
(I cannot be positive which.)
Hilaire Belloc (1870-1953)

Yak Talk

The yak is busy in Tibet,
On mosses always munching.
He weights a half-a-ton and more
That’s why he’s busy brunching.

Do not disturb this shaggy ox
If you shuld see one snacking.
As that is what a yak must do
To have more years of yaking.
