      The Auk and the Orchid

      We seldom meet, when out to walk,
      Either the orchid or the auk;
      The auk indeed is only known
      To dwellers in the Auktic zone,
      While orchids can be found in legions,
      Within the equatorial regions.
      The graceful orchid on its stalk,
      Resembles so the awkward auk;
      'Tis plain we must some means discover,
      To tell the two from one another:
      The obvious difference, to be sure,
      Is merely one of temperature.
      For eskimos, perhaps the Auk
      Performs the duties of the stork.
