The Hippolytus church


The church graveyard at the southside of the tower

The donkey, headstrong as it is
Wicked it is never
The fox is called a shady beast
But is extremely clever
The pig may look a dirty sod
But is in fact quite coy
The cat may hiss and scratch,
But can also purr of joy

So every animal has its own way
And still we see them
Friendly gathered here today.
