    great poem really love it Long ago, in youth, he squander'd
    All his goods away, and wander'd
    To the Tinskoop-hills afar.

    On a little heap of Barley
    Died my aged Uncle Arly,
    And they buried him one night;
    Close beside the leafy thicket
    very good poem

    Uncle Arly
    And the life
    Under the poetic description
    Excellently expressed

    Enjoyed the funny poem of Edward Lear. Here is my feedback:

    Once there was the aged Uncle Arly;
    Who was sitting on the heap of Barley;
    Fermenting to make some beer,
    For himself and also for Mr Lear,
    They got drunk and cursed Mr Charlie.

    A nice life story of Uncle Arly. Though death is ultimate.

    There were some interesting passages here but in the end I sat here wondering what it was all about
