Emmanuel's mother told him, "never
Walk beside a flowing river."
But ever disobedient, he
Went off alone. Oh deary me.
For our Emmanuel couldn't swim.
And that is why you can't see him.

Poor Emmanuel - gone without even a ripple to remember him by.ReplyDelete
Delightfully funny! Well...not for Emmanuel.ReplyDelete
Lovely rhyme, lovely river, but the thought of what happened makes you shiver.ReplyDelete
One could do worse in this life, then having a Francis Garrood poem dedicated to your memory! Poor Emmanuel, carried of on a current of disobedience. RIP *snort*ReplyDelete

There is always the chance of an evolutionary anomaly of an impressive looking horse that simply cant swim !ReplyDelete
