Riddle: If old stories say true,
I could once talk like you;
But for fear of becoming a slave,
I was instantly mute,
And grew cunning to boot,
Determined my freedom to save.

And the rude boy at school,
All endeavour to practise my art,
But their efforts are vain;
They pretenders remain,
And must--till the world they depart.
