Natural Contradictions

Peacock, Hen and Cock Pheasant in a Landscape  Tobias Strandover

The Peacock
                 by Christina Rossetti
The peacock has a score of eyes,
With which he cannot see;
The cod-fish has a silent sound,
However that may be;
No dandelions tell the time,
Although they turn to clocks;
Cat's-cradle does not hold the cat,
Nor foxglove fit the fox.
