  • Text: They seemed to be twins / One was very dowdily / dressed, the other in bright / yellow, but both a number of / strange marks & spots something / like dice. They did not hold up their / heads and you could not see faces or the / honey-pots they carried, Some of the crowd / whispered that their ancestors were gamblers, and / now the children were all branded with these signs / They said / Fritillaries are we! / Some people call us Snake-heads: / It is not kind, but we don't mind; / We only bow and shake heads / And off we gambol free!
