The Old Person of Skye

The Old Person of Skye, an illustration by JVL in The Nonsense Verse of Edward Lear
Jonathan Cape, 1984 and reissued in 2012.

There was an Old Peson of Skye
Who waltz'd with a Bluebottle fly:
They buzzz'd a sweet tune, to the light of the moon,
And entranced all the people of Skye.
