His Garden by Edward Lear

From The Complete Nonsense Book,
edited by Lady Strachey, 1912

And this is certain; if so be
You could just now my garden see,
The aspic of my flowers so bright
Would make you shudder with delight.
And if you vos to see my rozziz
As is a boon to all men's nozziz,--
You'd fall upon your back and scream--
'O Lawk! O criky! it's a dream!'

How doth the little crocodile by Lewis Carroll

How doth the little crocodile
Improve his shining tail,
And pour the waters of the Nile
On every golden scale!

How cheerfully he seems to grin
How neatly spreads his claws,
And welcomes little fishes in,
With gently smiling jaws!

There was an Old Man of Leghorn by Edward Lear

There was an Old Man of Leghorn,
The smallest as ever was born;
But quickly snapt up he,
Was once by a puppy,
Who devoured that Old Man of Leghorn.

There was an Old Man of the Cape by Edward Lear

There was an Old Man of the Cape,
Who possessed a large Barbary Ape;
Till the Ape one dark night,
Set the house on a light,
Which burned that Old Man of the Cape.

Friends by Stuart Macfarlane

Drain the colour from the rainbow,
Let the stars tumble from the sky,
Mute the birdís morning chorus,
Steal the beauty from the flowers.
All these and more Iíd sacrifice,
And surely would survive.
But friendship . . . .
Not a moment could I bare,
To be without the friends I love.
For they are lifeís true wonders,
Filling my heart, my soul, my senses.
With all the colours of happiness,
With every sight and sound of joy.
(Copyright Stuart Macfarlane)
