Edward Lear Quotes
Back to Poet Page
"And they bought an Owl, and a useful Cart, And a pound of Rice, and a Cranberry Tart."
"And who so happy,- O who, as the Duck and the Kangaroo?"
"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."
"Serve up in a clean dish, and throw the whole out of the window as fast as possible."
"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."
"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."
"Two old Bachelors were living in one house; One caught a Muffin, the other caught a Mouse."
