Mister Ron's Basement #1741

We have been reading fun poems from Ellis Parker Butler this week.

Back in 1895, one of the most popular, and controversial artists of the day, was Aubrey Beardsley. Today's poem from 1895, is about Beardsley, but is called 'The Ballad of the Mermaid and the Sea Serpent.'

Time: approx three minutes.
