As a footnote - on classic doggerel...

"on yonder hill,
there stood a coo,
it's no there noo,
it must have shifted."

or the variation:

"on yonder hill there stood a coo,
if it's no there, it's awa noo."

Alas, althoguh often atrributed to him, neither are by McGonagall, although they appear to be contemporaneous.
