How Pleasant To Know Mr. Lear

Rating: 3.0
How pleasant to know Mr. Lear,
Who has written such volumes of stuff.
Some think him ill-tempered and queer,
But a few find him pleasant enough.

His mind is concrete and fastidious,
His nose is remarkably big;
His visage is more or less hideous,
His beard it resembles a wig.
He has ears, and two eyes, and ten fingers,

I love autobios and this one is a hoot. I believe I do know Mr. Lear, in spirit, at least.

I can see the humor here, I can see a character being sketched here, and I can see that these things have been done well but to my shame I could not get involved in this poem's world. Perhaps another day I would, but not today

My dear Susan, come on! You're missing out on all the fun! I would have loved to be able to say myself 'how pleasant to know Mr. Lear'. Now, go on, give it another try and please read 'The Owl and the Pussycat', if you haven't already, and tell me you don't like it.

My dear Rod, because you asked so sweetly and politely, I will go read the Owl and the Pussycat and tell you how it goes for me and I will do so politely and sweetly ;)

I would indeed like to have known him. His poems were almost always humorous and he was a master of the limerick.
