Sullen Sallow Callous Callow

Sullen, sallow, callous, callow
Sullen, sallow, callous, callow

If you sulk all the time
As though sad thoughts you are mullin’
You’re sullen

If you look unhealthy
If your skin’s a sickly yellow
You’re sallow

If you’re cruel and insensitive
And act with malice
You’re callous

If you’re a young and na├»ve
And inexperienced fellow
You’re callow

Geography Terms

Geography terms, geography terms

A chain of islands is called an archipelago
I’d like to go there on vacation, that’s a place that’s swell to go

A narrow waterway between two cliffs is called a fjord
You can visit one in Norway if the fare you can afford

A narrow stretch of land between two seas is called an isthmus
That’s what we call it all year long, not only just on Christmas

At the mouth of a river is a flat expanse of silt
We call that place a delta and it is by nature built

An isolated hill with a flat top and steep sides
Is called a butte by the astute and by all others else besides
