Publisher's Summary

There was a verse writer named Lear who said, “In the future I fear, that the verses I write be recorded (they might) for all who desire so to hear” (R.M. with apologies to E. L.)    

Edward Lear is justly renowned as a writer of humorous verse. His Nonsense Songs were published in 1871 and include probably his best known and most loved poem, “The Owl and the Pussycat”. Laughable Lyrics (1877) contains other popular rhymes, including “The Dong with a Luminous Nose”, “The Courtship of the Yonghy-Bonghy-Bo”, “The Pobble Who Has No Toes”, and more.
