Here you will find the Poem Nonsense Verses of poet Gelett Burgess
1 THE Window has Four little Panes: But One have I; The Window-Panes are in its sash,? I wonder why! 2 My Feet they haul me 'round the House: They hoist me up the Stairs; I only have to steer them and They ride me everywheres. 3 Remarkable truly, is Art! See?Elliptical wheels on a Cart! It looks very fair In the Picture up there; But imagine the Ride when you start! 4 [Pg 58]I'd rather have fingers than Toes; I'd rather have Ears than a Nose: And as for my hair, I'm glad it's all there, I'll be awfully sad when it goes! 5 I wish that my Room had a floor; I don't so much care for a Door, But this walking around Without touching the ground Is getting to be quite a bore!
