Little Swiss Clock

“Little Swiss Clock,” Friend, Dec. 1972, inside back cover

Little Swiss Clock

The tiny Swiss clock

That hangs on my wall

Ticks always so softly

I can’t hear it at all.

But inside that clock

A little Swiss bird

Each morning awakes

And so loudly is heard,

I can’t stay asleep

Or I know I’ll be late,

For soon the school bus

Will swing past our gate.
