The Old Man of Dunrose

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

 There was an Old Man of Dunrose;
A parrot seized hold of his nose;
When he grew melancholy, they said, 'His name's Polly,'
Which soothed that Old Man of Dunrose.
