Here we have another of Lear’s useful objects set as a four-part round. I love the way that Lear, in so few words, brings this little thimble to life. The small twists in the harmony where the tonality shifts between B flat and D flat may need a little care. As a round, the arrangement can be altered as desired until the ending, which is fixed. The tight fit of the thimble is painted by the equally ‘tight’ chord (‘C’ against ‘D’ flat) on the words “nice little” before resolving (nicely) in the final bar.
