By the Light of the Moon SOLD

This is a literary week! One of the poems I've enjoyed reading to my children over the years has been Edward Lear's Owl and the Pussy Cat...I think I can quote it by heart now.

The Owl and the Pussy-cat went to sea  In a beautiful pea green boat,
They took some honey, and plenty of money, Wrapped up in a five pound note.
The Owl looked up to the stars above, And sang to a small guitar,
'O lovely Pussy! O Pussy my love, What a beautiful Pussy you are,
You are, You are!What a beautiful Pussy you are!'

Pussy said to the Owl, 'You elegant fowl! How charmingly sweet you sing!
O let us be married! too long we have tarried: But what shall we do for a ring?'
They sailed away, for a year and a day, To the land where the Bong-tree grows
And there in a wood a Piggy-wig stood With a ring at the end of his nose,
His nose, His nose, With a ring at the end of his nose.

'Dear pig, are you willing to sell for one shilling your ring?' Said the Piggy, 'I will.'
So they took it away, and were married next day by the Turkey who lives on the hill.
They dined on mince, and slices of quince, Which they ate with a runcible spoon;
And hand in hand, on the edge of the sand, They danced by the light of the moon,
The moon, The moon, They danced by the light of the moon.

By the Light of the Moon. 16+2 inches of shimmering blue green blister pearls, freshwater pearls, gray czech glass crystals, and antiqued silver spacers provide a background for the full moon-beyond-the-tree pendant. Necklace $33, Earrings $9
