The Sydney Morning Herald (NSW : 1842 – 1954), Saturday 17 October 1936
I have a horse, a charger black so very fierce
Who snorts and tosses back his head with
loud, whinnying cry.
My dobbin does not roam away, nor is he
That’s because my trusty steed is a pillow on
A pillow horse is quite the bestest kind of
horse to own,
That is, of course, for little folks who don’t
like being thrown.
It doesn’t cost a penny piece to keep my horse
Although I’m not allowed to take him out
upon the lawn.
My dobbin is a noble steed, with me upon his
We gallop off for many miles a-down a dream-
He has neither stall nor stable, is never,
So that’s the bestest kind of horse, a pillow
on the bed!
