Edward Lear Quotes

    The Quangle Wangle's Hat

    On the top of the Crumpetty Tree
    The Quangle Wangle sat,
    But his face you could not see,
    On account of his Beaver Hat.
    For his Hat was a hundred and two feet wide,
    With ribbons and bibbons on every side
    And bells, and buttons, and loops, and lace,
    So that nobody every could see the face
