《挤牛奶的姑娘和她的木桶》The Milkmaid and Her Pail
Milkmaid Sally was on her way to market.
On her pretty head she carried the pail of milk she was going to sell.
And inside the pretty head, she was thinking busy thoughts.
"With the money I get for my milk," she said to herself as she walked along, "I shall buy a good hen."
She will lay a whole nest full of eggs -- twenty at least. But I shall not sell them. I shall let her hatch up the whole lot.
How cute twenty little yellow chicks will be, running around the yard!
I shall feed them well, and when they are of a good size, I shall sell them.
With the money, I shall buy a fine new dress and a ribbon to go with it.
I'll wear them to the fair. And the lads will be crazy about me. But I shall act proud and not look at one of them."
Here, she tossed her pretty head to show how she would scorn the boys. And down fell the pail of milk, spilling every drop.
Moral: don't count your chickens before they are hatched.
