Purple Cows

I'm traveling, so no photos, but just had to make a quick Post. Michelle at Heart and Hands posted The Gingham Dog and the Calico Cat poem, which I loved growing up. My grandfather had owned a bookstore and we had my mother's childhood book of poems by Eugene Fields. It had that, and the Sugarplum Tree, and Winken, Blynken, and Nod. All wonderful poems for kids! Paula the Quilter was blogging about The Gingham Dog and Calico Cat, and then added Purple Cow. ("I never saw a purple cow...") I just have to share another poem by the author of Purple Cow, who wrote seriously but was known for his purple cow ditty. Here's what he wrote:

Ah, yes, I wrote the purple cow
I'm sorry now I wrote it.
But I can tell you anyhow,
I'll kill you if you quote it!
