The Pied Piper Verse 5

``Come in!'' -- the Mayor cried, looking

And in did come the figure!

His coat from heel to head

Was half of and half of ,

And he himself was and ,

With eyes, each like a pin,

And hair, yet skin

No tuft on cheek nor beard on chin,

But lips where smile went out and in;

There was no guessing his kith and kin:

And nobody could enough admire

The man and his attire.

Quoth one: ``It's as my great-grandsire,

Starting up at the Trump of Doom's tone,

Had walked this way from his tombstone!''
