When Cedric went fishing in Gallway
He left both his coats in the hallway.
His binoculars, too,
(Since there was wasn't a view).
Now he's drowned. And he's missed. (In a small way.)
(With thanks to Tess at Magpie Tales for the picture)

Aaaw, poor Cedric.ReplyDelete
Should have stayed at home, shouldn't he?Delete
I'll second Patsy on this one.ReplyDelete
And I'll second my reply, GB!Delete
Sharp and witty - well done!
Thank you, Berowne!Delete
Excellent rhyme and wit as always.ReplyDelete
And cheers to you too, ReBelle!Delete
You are always one of my favorite visits each week.ReplyDelete
Sue - how kind!Delete
There is always joy at this blog address. Thank you once again, Frances.ReplyDelete

Oh dear goodness, I'll miss him in a big way. Who is he again?!!!!!!! hahahahahaReplyDelete
I've no idea, Karen!Delete
... awe. Let's hope they put his belongings to good use :)ReplyDelete
Oxfam shop, Margaret. He hadn't made a will.Delete
The painting is lovely, somewhat reminiscent of Andrew Wyeth's work or John Singer Sargent's. Your perfectly composed limerick has made me view it in a different way, though. The limerick makes me happy, but the painting now makes me sad.ReplyDelete
Well done, Frances!
And well done you, for guessing the artist!Delete
Oh, my goodness, I just checked over at Magpie Tales and the painting IS by Andrew Wyeth! I'm more erudite than I thought!ReplyDelete
As my mother used to tell me, "Don't break your arm patting yourself on the back...."
Wry with tonic.ReplyDelete
Thank you, DCW!Delete
But I can't do the clever things with the pictures that you do, Jinksy!Delete
No PFD either, huh? What a shame.ReplyDelete
PFD?? I'll have to go and look that up!Delete
Hopefully poor Cedric was wearing his hand-knit Irish wool sweater and they were able to identify him by the woven pattern! (One of the many little facts learned on my trips to Ireland!) Clever little Limerick-- Nice to see a bit of a different style here!ReplyDelete
