Beautiful, in a Sluggardly Way


Four-and-twenty tailors
Went to kill a snail;
The best man among them
Durst not touch her tail;
She put our her horns
Like a little Kyloe cow.
Run, tailors, run, or
She’ll kill you all just now.

    Beautiful photo, but I think I love the poem even more!

  2. I guess you get really cool pictures where you live! Right now, we get pictures of snow. But I love that the cold weather doesn’t allow termites in our area!

      Yes, the termites! They’re terrible!! We just had pest control out this last week to check for them, and they sprayed stuff on our walls to kill cockroaches. So I guess you wouldn’t want those either. šŸ˜‰ I noticed you weren’t doing Wordless Wednesdays lately. šŸ˜‰
