Here's a counting out rhyme based around the vowels!


We took some liberties with the translation above to preserve the rhyming scheme of the original. A more literal translation would be:

A, The donkey goes away,
E, The donkey is gone,
I, The donkey is here,
O, The donkey drowned,
U, The donkey is you!



Thanks to Monique Palomares for reciting this rhyme for us!
