Edward Lear

(12 May 1812 – 29 January 1888 / London / England)

Parody Of Tennyson'sto Edward Lear On His Travels In Greece - Poem by Edward Lear

Delirious Bulldogs; -- echoing calls
My daughter, -- green as summer grass; --
The long supine Plebeian ass,
The nasty crockery boring falls; --

Tom-Moory Pathos; -- all things bare, --
With such a turket! such a hen!
And scrambling forms of distant men,
O! ain't you glad you were not there!
