I thought I might be so bold as to place this poem that I had written as a child of ten years for your perusal.

Marigolds by E. Montebank-Bliss

Taking care of marigolds
Was no ordinary fate.
They needed watching
One by one
As they acquired
Individual taste.
Oft I'd see them
In the morning
Amidst a grassy hill.
More of lily than buttercup
In their lake of
Chlorophyll.

These curtains are heavy, I am stultified!
Release me with your light essence.
Carry me to my unburden, my Heathcliffe
And let the sands stop when at last embraced I.

What a wonderful poem! Never more when I hear the word' Marigold' will I automatically think of yellow rubber gloves and the family toilet......

Thankyou Esme!

Dear Tito

You are more than welcome. I am gratified that you hold my stanza in the same enamour as the ineffable Mr Gibney. Perhaps next time I shall enlighten you all of the genius that shall always be Somerville Gibney.

With Kindness
Esme

ps. I shall forgive your incorrect use of the "t" word on this ocassion.

These curtains are heavy, I am stultified!
Release me with your light essence.
Carry me to my unburden, my Heathcliffe
And let the sands stop when at last embraced I.

You are most kind and yes, I should be punished for the incorrect 'T' but I was so delighted to have the glove/toilet scenario banished forever and a field of flowers pluge forth at me instead I became over-enthused!

Somerville Gibney sounds most interesting too!

Bah! I was rather hoping to read a good old fashioned tongue lashing of Tito.

Not that I think you actually deserve one Tito. It would just be funny, admittedly at your expense.

For my narcissistic thinking, I recommend you direct your favorite brick to the back of my head. That would be funny too.

Really? Wow.

No one should throw a brick at Cary Grant's head. Even if the Cary Grant in question is being naughty.

He was just too suave to be hit with a brick.

If, in a spirit of friendship Nitro, you would like me to throw bricks at the back of your head then change your avatar to Margaret Thatcher and I will throw them all day. In fact I may have to be physically restrained to put a stop to it!

Mr Nitro looks surprisingly like Mrs Leach's boy...I'm sure he'll amount to nothing though!

These curtains are heavy, I am stultified!
Release me with your light essence.
Carry me to my unburden, my Heathcliffe
And let the sands stop when at last embraced I.

Yes, yes, 'amount to nothing'.

That's me in spades. Still, I do occasionally have some problems trying to convince the people around me that's true.

In any event, back to marigolds and bricks...

(BTW Tito, I'd no more have Thatcher as an avatar than I would our local used car salesman. Tee hee )

Really? Wow.

I throw blessings by the bucketful at you.
