Limerick: There Was A Young Lady In White

Poem By Edward Lear

There was a Young Lady in White,
Who looked out at the depths of the Night;
But the birds of the air
Filled her heart with despair,
And oppressed that Young Lady in White.

A fabulous limerick. A pleasure to read.
It may be a limerick but it reaches deeper into the reader's soul than the typical limerick, way deeper.
The young lady in white is an amazing limerick. Enjoyed reading it. Thanks for sharing.
