Magpie 144


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)


  1. I'll second Patsy on this one.

  2. Excellent rhyme and wit as always.

  3. You are always one of my favorite visits each week.


  4. There is always joy at this blog address. Thank you once again, Frances.

  5. Oh dear goodness, I'll miss him in a big way. Who is he again?!!!!!!! hahahahaha

  6. ... awe. Let's hope they put his belongings to good use :)

  7. 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.

    Well done, Frances!

  8. Oh, my goodness, I just checked over at Magpie Tales and the painting IS by Andrew Wyeth! I'm more erudite than I thought!

    As my mother used to tell me, "Don't break your arm patting yourself on the back...."

    1. But I can't do the clever things with the pictures that you do, Jinksy!

  10. No PFD either, huh? What a shame.

  11. 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!
