The Pied Piper of Hamelin. Robert Browning. Illustrated by Kate Greenaway. Frederick Warne & Co, Ltd., London, n.d., c.1880.
Rats ! They fought the clogs and killed the cats, And bit the babies in the cradles, Split open the kegs of salted sprats, Made nests inside men’s Sunday hats, By drowning their speaking With shrieking and squeaking In fifty different sharps and flats.

In fifty different sharps and flats.
