Creative Quotations from . . .
Edward Lear
(1812-1888) born on
May 12
English poet, landscape painter. He was best known for his nonsense poems, which portray a world of fantastic creatures in nonsense words.
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.

They dined on mince, and slices of quince,
Which they ate with a runcible spoon;
And hand in hand, on the edge of the sand,
They danced by the light of the moon.
I was much distressed by next door people who had twin babies and played the violin; but one of the twins died, and the other has eaten the fiddle - so all is peace.
It's a fact the whole world knows,
That Pobbles are happier without their toes.
There was an Old Man with a beard,
Who said, 'It is just as I feared! -
Two Owls and a Hen,
Four Larks and a Wren,
Have all built their nests in my beard!'
