A Treasury of Humorous Poetry continues. This time, one of my ethnic oxen is gored, so you can tell I mean it about giving some love to dialect poetry! We also have a couple of ballads of romantic love gone wrong, a retelling of Robinson Crusoe’s contented castaway life, and a slice of parental life.
“Widow MacShane” by Robert Henry Newell (writing as ‘Orpheus C. Kerr’)
“Robinson Crusoe” by Charles Edward Carryl
“The Ballad of the Oysterman” by Oliver Wendell Holmes
“Only Seven: A Pastoral Story After Wordsworth” by Henry S. Leigh
UPDATE: Link fixed. Sorry about that.
