I was listening to Poetry Please, on BBC Radio 4 today while I was cooking away. They were celebrating the life and work of the poet and painter, Edward Leer, most famous for his nonsense poems. They played The Owl and the Pussycat, sung by Elton Hayes. I adored this poem growing up, so much so that its one of the very few things I took the time to commit to memory. I thought it was wonderfully sung by Elton Hayes and I simply had to share. Edward Leer was a wonderful poet.
