Peacock Glass

December 3, 2009 7:30 am | Glass

Who wrote this poem? I saw it on a poster at school?

I saw a peacock with a fiery tail.
I saw a comet drop down hail.
I saw a cloud with ivy circled round.
I saw a sturdy oak creep on the ground.
I saw a pismire swallow up a whale.
I saw the raging sea brim full of ale.
I saw a Venice glass sixteen foot deep.
I saw a well full of men's tears that weep.
I saw their eyes all in a flame of fire.
I saw a house as big as the moon and higher.
I saw the sun even in the midst of night.
I saw the man that saw this wondrous sight.

it was written a long time ago - 17th or 18th century and noone knows who wrote it.

it's a puzzle peom, If you read the lines as they are written, they become a set of absurdities. No one has ever seen “A peacock with a fiery tail,” or “A blazing comet drop down hail.” But if you put a dash in each line after the noun, then everything will make sense. “I saw a peacock. - With a fiery tail I saw a blazing comet,” and so on.
