storizenmag: Made popular by Edward Lear in the 19th Century, Limerick is a type of poetry that is funny and sometimes rude! Following a set rhyme scheme of AABBA, lines one, two, and five are longer in length than the third and the fourth line.

MulberryCorfu: I wish I could give you an idea of the beauty of this island, it is really a paradise Edward Lear, in a letter to his sister Ann, 1848 (in Greece, Michael Carroll, IB Taurus)

BibleWonderLand: This wonderfully entertaining collection of nonsensical tales contains a feast of silly shenanigans, mischievous tomfoolery and hilarious goings-on. Includes stories by the nonsense greats Edward Lear and Lewis Carroll, as well as Rudyard Kipling, Andrew Lang and Joseph Jacobs.

bradwellbaby1: From the Oxford Book of Poetry for Children. My absolute favourite. Not Edward Lear's most famous one. Does anyone else remember 'The Pobble?' Here's to Aunt Jobiska's Runcible Cat with Crimson Whiskers.

DanGraur: Speaking of Edward Lear, how can we forget his amazing limericks or his beautiful paintings of tropical birds. "There was an Old Man of Aôsta Who possessed a large Cow, but he lost her; But they said, "Don't you see... she has run up a tree, You invidious Old Man of Aôsta?"

JRCookson: I am excited for this new novel coming out tomorrow. The Melrose series is mind- and heart-rending, writing so good it makes one weak in the knees, and Dunbar, his riff on Lear, is a hoot.

JohnMoynes: Whatever about baby Hitler I definitely want to go back in time and teach baby Edward Lear that limericks should finish with a punchline and not a repeat of the first line.

FlashpointHx: This is Edward Lear's 1859 'Jerusalem from the Mt. of Olives. In order to give pictures like this a 3D effect, I have to zoom in very closely to add image masks. I feel like I appreciate the man's artistry even more as you take in the subtle brushstrokes and intricate details.
