No Nonsense, presents a rhyme of No Nonsense by the one and only Mervyn Peake.

Red GeraniumsNO NONSENSE
from Diddilydeedot's Dreamland

This little rhyme comes from a wonderful man who sadly went to heaven a few years ago.
His name is Mervyn Peake and he wrote books and poetry, When you grow up, I am sure you will read about a place called "Gormanghast" and maybe even Mr. Pye, but today I am letting you read the rhyme called;

THE TROUBLE WITH GERANIUMS


The trouble with geraniums
is that they're much too red!
The trouble with my toast is that
it's far too full of bread.
Diamond
The trouble with a diamond
is that it's much too bright.
The same applies to fish and stars
and the electric light.
stars
The trouble with the stars I see
lies in the way they fly.
The trouble with myself is all
self-centred in the eye.
Through The Looking Glass.
Illustrated by Mervyn Peake
The trouble with my looking glass
is that it shows me, me:
there's trouble in all sorts of things
where it should never be.

From A Book of Nonsense by Mervyn Peake (1911 - 1968.)
had to enclose a book cover of
Through the Looking Glass, Illustrated by Mervyn Peake.
He was also a marvellous Artist too.
