Laura Elizabeth Howe Richards was an American writer who wrote over 90 books and poems. Some of her works were written for children, one such especially well-known poem is her literary nonsense verse  [+]

Once there was an elephant,
Who tried to use the telephant—
No! No! I mean an elephone
Who tried to use the telephone—
(Dear me! I am not certain quite
That even now I’ve got it right.)
Howe’er it was, he got his trunk
Entangled in the telephunk;
The more he tried to get it free,
The louder buzzed the telephee—
(I fear I’d better drop the song
Of elephop and telephong!)
