      A nice sweet bittersweet tale (Because this is Edward Gorey were talking about) that tells of a friendship between a bird and man.They sometimes strolled beyond the town In time to watch the sun go down.

      Bitter sweet story of a friendship between a man and a bird only Edward Gorey could tell.

      Read in Amphigorey Too, wanted to separately rate the story.I love how the bird's legs are drawn.Also made me think how some birds outlive their owner (Hemingway?).

      If you like Edward Lear, you'll love this!, October 22, 2014This review is from: The Osbick Bird (Hardcover)Wonderful nonsense verse, accompanied by the author's artwork.Emblus Fingby is befriended by an osbick bird, which shares his life:"The years passed by in pressing weedsAnd making bell-pulls out of beads."The faithful creature even roosts on its deceased owner's gravestoner a bit:"But after several months, one dayIt changed its mind and flew away."Loved it!

      The Osbick Bird tells of the lifelong friendship between a man and "the osbick bird" that spontaneously chooses him as its friend. This cute (and absurd) tale of friendship takes a sentimental turn towards the end and finishes off on a mystifying note that can be interpreted as either heartwarming or incredibly cynical. Who knows?

      I enjoyed this cute little poem, with a drawing and only two lines on each page. Sometimes the simplest writing is the most rewarding. I would like to see more of this author's work.

      Truly, a most refined bird.
