When a Twister a-twisting will twist him a twist,

For the twisting of his twist, he three twines doth intwist.

But if one of the twines of the twist do untwist,

The twine that untwisteth, untwisteth the twist.


Untwirling the twine that untwisteth between,

He twirls with his twister, the two in a twine.

Then, twice having twisted the twines of the twine,

He twitcheth, the twice he had twined, in twain.


The twain that, in twining, before in the twine

As twines were intwisted, he now doth untwine.

Twixt the twain inter-twisting a twine more between,

He, twirling his twister, makes a twist of the twine.
