Dan, Dan, The Acorn Man by Philip Burton

 
How do you conceal eight grains of wheat? 
Stick them to an acorn. Two for the eyes, 
Two for the ears. One for the mouth.  
One for the nose. Two for the feet. 
Where do you hide an acorn man? Under an oak leaf. 
Secrete the leaf (and the acorn man) under a house. 
Hide this abode in a no through road. 
Stow this road in Stow-on-the-Wold.
 
Few folk go to Stow-on-the-Wold. 
Few folk know Stow-on-the-Wold 
so few folk know if Stow-on-the-Wold 
has such a thing as a no through road 
or a house with a leaf underneath 
or a leaf with an acorn man below. 
In fact you’re the only one I’ve told 
about the acorn man I stowed-on-the-Wold 
               when I was all of eight years old.
