Found in one of my kids books. ;)

The Owl and the Pussy-Cat by Edward Lear. Illustrated by Douglas Cameron.. not that I have a scanner, so you can't see the illustrations... but oh well. ;)

The Owl and the Pussy-cat
went to sea
In a beautiful pea-green boat.
They took some honey,
and plenty of money,
Wrapped up
in a five pound note.

The owl looked up to
the stars aove,
And sang to a small guitar,
"O lovely Pussy!
O Pussy, my love,
What a beautiful Pussy
you are, you are, you are!
What a beautiful Pussy
You are!"

Pussy said to the Owl,
"You elegant fowl!
How charmingly sweet
You sing!
O let us be married!
Too long we have tarried:
But what shall we do
for a ring?"

They sailed away,
for a year and a day,
To the land where the
Bong-Tree grows,
And there in a wood a
Piggy-wig stood,
Witha ring at the end of
his nose, his nose, his nose,
With a ring at the end
of his nose.

"Dear pig, are you willing
to sell for one shilling
Your ring?"
Said the Piggy, " I will."
So they took it away,
and were married next day
By the turkey who loves on the hill.

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, the moon,
the moon,
They danced by the light of
the moon.

Didn't he write Animal Fair, too? Everything online says "anon" but I remember seeing his name on it when I was a kid - which means it's been around a very long time!
Project Gutenburg has a collection of his works free.

Yay!!! Awesome babe, thank you. Favorite placing for future use. We're watching Sorcerer's Stone right now. *laughs* He doesn't want me to interrupt his wizard time.
