Magpie 278



As she wandered along the railway track,
People cried, "there will soon be a train on her!"
But "don't worry" the old station master replied,
"That's the ghost of poor Anna Karenina."




(With thanks to Tess at Magpie Tales fot the picture.)

  2. I'm sorry to be picky but I don't think AK would be seen dead in a hat like that!

    2. You are, of course, correct Frances. It's being pernickety wot keeps me going (though not far enough away some would say).

  3. Problem for me is that since I know that there is no such thing as a ghost, it has to be a real person whether it is AK or some other poor wretch.

  4. Nobody can KNOW there's no such thing as a ghost, just as they can't know there's no God (as I'm sure Dawkins suspects, despite all the blustering).

  5. Now there's a book I know I will never read, even though I would like to, just to prove that I can.

    1. I read it many years ago, Maggie, and greatly enjoyed it. But I've pretty well forgotten it now, except of course the train bit!
