|Kate Greenaway (1846-1901) in addition to being a poet of merit she also was a highly talented illustrator.
|The King and the Queen were riding
Upon a Summer's day,
And a Blackbird flew above them,
To hear what they did say.
The King said he liked apples,
The Queen said she liked pears.
And what shall we do to the Blackbird
Who listens unawares.
