Nonsense verse of Edward Lear, and Ogden Nash

December 16, 2010

These are two people whom I hold in high regard, for their mastery of the language…

I have a pash For the words of Nash And I hold the works of Lear Very dear…. I wish I could play with words With a talent like Edward’s…. I’d write wonderful verse, then, Comparable to Ogden….. I’d make English Bend to my will, Serve up my verse as a delectable dish; And cook up further rhymes, still.

Thank you,


whose links to Lear’s nonsense verse got me on to this track today.
