    Wink Nonsense Poetry

    Where could I find a copy of an anonymous poem that starts like : "Yesterday morning about midnight an old man the size of a boy...? My grandma recited the poem to me when I was in grade school in the 1950's. Is there a literary term for this type of nonsense verse?

    Hello Maryliz

    I can't find anything that resembles your first line - can you remember any other significant words?

    All the best,

    MrP
