The Nose it is a wondrous thing
It lets all kinds of smells go in
And gently warms them in its maze
And probes and checks that scented haze
Then lets you know it’s cardamom
Or aniseed or fruity gum
It sorts the jasmine from the rose
How does it work do you suppose?
Ten thousand odours it can tell
This providential sense of smell
A Nobel Prize awaits the one
Who figures out how this is done!
