Poem 28

I Saw a Peacock

I saw a peacock with a fiery tail
I saw a blazing comet drop down hail
I saw a cloud wrapped with ivy round
I saw an oak creep on along the ground
i saw a pismire swallow up a whale
I saw the sea brim full of ale
I saw a Venice glass five fathoms deep
I saw a well full of men's eyes that weep
I saw red eyes all of a flaming fire
I saw a house bigger than the sun and higher
I saw the moon at twelve o'clock at night
I saw the Man that saw this wondrous sight.

There's a trick to this poem. See if you can figure it out.
