I Saw a Peacock, with a Fiery Tail

    I
saw a peacock with a fiery tail,                                                                         
I Saw a Peacock, with a fiery tail,
I saw a Blazing Comet, drop down hail,
I saw a Cloud, with Ivy circled round,
I saw a sturdy Oak, creep on the ground,
I saw a Pismire, swallow up a Whale,
I saw a raging Sea, brim full of Ale,
I saw a Venice Glass, Sixteen foot deep,
I saw a well, full of mens tears that weep,
I saw their eyes, all in a flame of fire,
I saw a House, as big as the Moon and higher,

I saw the Sun, even in the midst of night,
I saw the man, that saw this wondrous sight.


Read this carefully mummy. Nobody knows who wrote it but it has been dated at about the 1660's

I
t is a kind of puzzle within a poem, a lesson on the importance of punctuation. As you can see, it only has one fullstop.


But if you punctuate it with a full stop, or a comma in the middle of each line, it makes perfect sense. "I saw a peacock."    "With a fiery tail I saw a comet." 
But the pictures that become visible are amazing
