a smiling cartoon of a spider and his wife

Nonesuch

We found an empty Tortoise Shell
In Tulgey Woods one evening
We wondered where the Owner was
And where he might be heading

A passing Spider and his Wife
Laughed at our concern
“Why, he stepped out for a breather sir
Pray wait for his return"

An Exhilarating Day

A Tulgey Wood Dormouse
Resented the way
He was programmed to sleep
For most of the day

He yearned for adventure
Perhaps that’s why he
Unprogrammed himself
And went off on a spree

He laughed in delight
As he whizzed through the trees
Where he twizzled and whistled
And did as he pleased…

Oh, he spreed and fast spreed
‘Til he fell in a heap
Then contentedly programmed
Himself back to sleep

Fourteen Moles a’quaking
Six frightened Worms and I
Were swapping ghostly stories
‘neath a darkened Tulgey sky


Scaring one and other
(T’was  on All Hallows Eve)
When suddenly a proper ghost
Came gliding through the trees!!,

A proper ghost! Afloating!
All misty round about…
The screaming Moles fast tunnelled,
The sighing Worms passed out

I myself, eyes  goggling,
Began a frantic sprint
A cloud of dust blew up and I’ve
Been running ever since


sincerely,  an expat  Tulgey Mouse

 The Spiders Tale

A Tulgey Wood Mouse

With a penny to spare

Decided to spend it on ME !!!

She bought a long bun
In a crinkly bag
And sent it, with love, for my tea

Such kindness deserves
A gift in return
Of that there is nary a doubt

So I sneaked Mistress Mouse
A free Lucky Stick

(And don’t care
If Sid Remmer
Finds out)

More to come....
