Parody Of Tennyson'sto Edward Lear On His Travels In Greece

Delirious Bulldogs; -- echoing calls
My daughter, -- green as summer grass; --
The long supine Plebeian ass,
The nasty crockery boring falls; --

Tom-Moory Pathos; -- all things bare, --
With such a turket! such a hen!
And scrambling forms of distant men,
O! ain't you glad you were not there!

Amusing poem, nicely written.
Humorous poem, enjoyable...
this poem is kinda funnier if you have read tennyson's 'To Edward Lear: on His Travels in Greece'
