  • Characters in the poem The Duel by Eugene Field.

    Excerpt from The Duel:

    The gingham dog and the calico cat

    Side by side on the table sat;

    'T was half-past twelve, and (what do you think!)

    Nor one nor t' other had slept a wink!

    The old Dutch clock and the Chinese plate

    Appeared to know as sure as fate

    There was going to be a terrible spat.

    (I was n't there; I simply state

    What was told to me by the Chinese plate!
