“The Owl and the Pussy-Cat” Print Set

“The Owl and the Pussy-Cat” by Edward Lear is one of my favorite childhood poems. I am printing up a copy of it to include with my owl and pussycat print set. I am using our Ruffing’s stationery, which is decorated with a beautiful white rose by Abby Laurence. It is on heavy acid-free cardstock, and is suitable for framing.

The print set can be found by scrolling down on either the “Henry the Owl” web page, or the “Elenora” web page of our Ruffing’s site. Both are also available in my Etsy shop, either separately, or as a set. The set includes the poem, and is $40 plus shipping. They can also be ordered by emailing me. The frames are not included.

I still have to film an intro for my “Elenora” video and then put it all together. I’ve been waiting for a time when I look well rested!

“The Owl and the Pussy-Cat” by Edward Lear

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 above,
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!
Oh! 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,
With a ring at the end of his nose,
His nose,
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 lives 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.
