We Interrupt This Tennyson Party to Announce: Emperor of Ice-Cream Cakes Loves Radish King
We love Radish King so much, we drew a picture of it. More specifically, of the lines:
You are a pea & thimble man On weekends you perform psychic surgery on children
from the poem "There Are Unclean Spirits." In my version, not only does the pea & thimble man perform psychic surgery on children, he performs it on his own children--his own tiny pea babies who are raised aloft with the power of his mind.
Happy Radish King Day, Rebecca! I wish it could have been a whole month, but Tennyson grows restless.
