There was a man of double deed, 
Who sowed his garden full of seed; 
When the seed began to grow, 
'Twas like a garden full of snow; 
When the snow began to melt, 
'Twas like a ship without a belt; 
When the ship began to sail, 
'Twas like a bird without a tail; 
When the bird began to fly, 
'Twas like an eagle in the sky; 
When the sky began to roar, 
'Twas like a lion at my door; 
When my door began to crack, 
'Twas like a stick across my back; 
When my back began to smart, 
'Twas like a penknife in my heart; 
And when my heart began to bleed, 
'Twas death, and death, and death indeed.
