Oliver Herford Never Poems

  • 1.
    The Kitten mews outside the Door,
    The Cat-bird in the Tree,
    The Sea-mew mews upon the Shore,
    The Catfish in the Sea.
  • 2.
    A's Albert Edward, well meaning but flighty,
    Who invited King Arthur, the blameless and mighty,
    To meet Alcibiades and Aphrodite.

  • 3.
