The Owl And The Pussy-Cat

Rating: 3.5
The Owl and the Pussy-cat went to sea
In a beautiful pea green boat,
They took some honey, and plenty of money,
Wrapped up in a five pound note.
The Owl looked up to the stars above,
And sang to a small guitar,
'O lovely Pussy! O Pussy my love,
What a beautiful Pussy you are,
You are,
You are!
What a beautiful Pussy you are!'

Lovely poem that takes me to my childhood days! It is really how innocently children believe that animals talk to one another and an owl and a cat can marry and they need a wedding ring.Loved Edward Lear's poems.

I'm not normally very good at " seeing" a picture of a poem, but even without a picture book, I can see this. It's one of my favourite poems and my cat purrs when I recite it to him. He's not so keen on " Jabberwocky" though, which is also one of my favourites.

I'm not generally very good at " seeing" a poem through its words, but this one really makes pictures in my mind. It's one of my favourite poems and my cat purrs when I recite it to him.

I read this poem in the first class with Miss Karen Cullen. She was my first grade teacher in 1957. She allowed me, as a left handed person, to turn my paper to the other side. God bless her and Edward Lear.
