The Courtship of the Yonghy-Bonghy-Bo

作者:未知  时间:2013-03-20
        by Edward Lear     On the Coast of Coromandel     Where the early pumpkins blow,     In the middle of the woods     Lived the Yonghy-Bonghy-Bo.     Two old chairs, and half a candle,     One old jug without a handle——     These were all his worldly goods,     In the middle of the woods,     These were all his worldly goods,     Of the Yonghy-Bonghy-Bo,     Of the Yonghy-Bonghy Bo.     Once, among the Bong-trees walking     Where the early pumpkins blow,     To a little heap of stones     Came the Yonghy-Bonghy-Bo.     There he heard a Lady talking,     To some milk-white Hens of Dorking——     "'Tis the Lady Jingly Jones!     On that little heap of stones     Sits the Lady Jingly Jones!"     Said the Yonghy-Bonghy-Bo,     Said the Yonghy-Bonghy-Bo.     "Lady Jingly! Lady Jingly!     Sitting where the pumpkins blow,     Will you come and be my wife?"     Said the Yongby-Bonghy-Bo.     "I am tired of living singly——     On this coast so wild and shingly——     I'm a-weary of my life;     If you'll come and be my wife,     Quite serene would be my life!"     Said the Yonghy-Bongby-Bo,     Said the Yonghy-Bonghy-Bo.     "On this Coast of Coromandel     Shrimps and watercresses grow,     Prawns are plentiful and cheap,"     Said the Yonghy-Bonghy-Bo.     "You shall have my chairs and candle,     And my jug without a handle!     Gaze upon the rolling deep     (Fish is plentiful and cheap);     As the sea, my love is deep!"     Said the Yonghy-Bonghy-Bo,     Said the Yonghy-Bonghy-Bo.     Lady Jingly answered sadly,     And her tears began to flow——     "Your proposal comes too late,     Mr. Yonghy-Bonghy-Bo!     I would be your wife most gladly!"     (Here she twirled her fingers madly)     "But in England I've a mate!     Yes! you've asked me far too late,     For in England I've a mate,     Mr. Yonghy-Bonghy-Bo!     Mr. Yongby-Bonghy-Bo!     "Mr. Jones (his name is Handel——     Handel Jones, Esquire, & Co.)     Dorking fowls delights to send     Mr. Yonghy-Bonghy-Bo!     Keep, oh, keep your chairs and candle,     And your jug without a handle——     I can merely be your friend!     Should my Jones more Dorkings send,     I will give you three, my friend!     Mr. Yonghy-Bonghy-Bo!     Mr. Yonghy-Bonghy-Bo!     "Though you've such a tiny body,     And your head so large doth grow——     Though your hat may blow away     Mr. Yonghy-Bonghy-Bo!     Though you're such a Hoddy Doddy,     Yet I wish that I could modi-     fy the words I needs must say!     will you please to go away     That is all I have to say,     Mr. Yonghy-Bonghy-Bo!     Mr. Yonghy-Bonghy-Bo!"     Down the slippery slopes of Myrtle,     Where the early pumpkins blow,     To the calm and silent sea     Fled the Yonghy-Bonghy-Bo.     There, beyond the Bay of Gurtle,     Lay a large and lively Turtle.     "You're the Cove," he said, "for me;     On your back beyond the sea,     Turtle, you shall carry me!"     Said the Yonghy-Bonghy-Bo,     Said the Yonghy-Bonghy-Bo.     Through the silent-roaring ocean     Did the Turtle swiftly go;
