Magpie 101



The sheep is stuffed, and rather square,
The woman, slim, asleep and bare.
They make a most peculiar pair.
I've no idea why they are there.


(With thanks to Magie Tales for the photo)

  4. That was exactly my first take too...woman on a sheep.

    A most peculiar pair indeed.

  7. What an odd picture! Your poem pretty much sums up my reaction to the image.

  8. It's art, isn't it?
    I wonder how long she needed to stay like that and if the goosebumps are part of the package or an optional extra.
