The Big Bad Wolf

#RubyTubeDay Poetry ‘The Big Bad Wolf’

The Big Bad Wolf
came out to play,
with three little piggy’s
for the day.

First he would huff
and then give a puff,
to blow their house down
but the last was too tough.

When Sunday came round
He was really quite bored.
he fancied a change,
and a chance for reward.

He decided to help,
re-build the pigs houses.
So he set off to work,
in check shirt and brown trousers.

Wolf smiled as he worked,
and sang a sweet song.
The pigs were impressed,
and they all sang along.

As they all worked together,
the house was soon finished.
The pigs gave their thanks
yet Wolf’s mood had diminished

An idea came to mind, and a sly smile crossed his lips
as he left with their thanks, and them calling him winner.
But standing outside he took one giant breath,
And with a huff and a puff, there was roast pork for dinner.

Beware of the Big Bad Wolf, make sure he does not come to blow your house down. Call back later for more poems. Don’t forget to SMILE!

Happy Reading

No Birds.

No birds were there singing this morning,
as the new day around us was dawning.
It’s raining outside,
in their nests they do hide,
snuggled up in their down and just yawning.

Rainbows.

Today I am the soft summer rain,
You are my sweet golden sunshine.
Together we’ll build us a rainbow,
to last, a life time.

The Birds.

I heard the birds singing since dawn.
So I rose from my bed with a yawn,
as I stepped out my door
I said “Please sing some more.
Then I’ll join you for drinks on the lawn”.

#RubyTubeDay Poetry ‘Highly Contagious’

It’s too late,
I’ve caught it,
the blame is on you.
I said “It’s contagious.”
So what do you do,
your smile it just broadens
I’m taken right in,
and now I have caught it
your great cheeky grin.
Highly Contagious!

The small dog suffers …

#DogLovers check out this wonderful poem by Sue Vincent we love it 🙂

Sue Vincent's Daily Echo

I tap away, I’m in full flow when, from her perch beside me,
The small dog reaches out a paw and touches me to chide me.
“Do you not love me any more? Perhaps you can’t abide me?
Oh, writer dear, it’s ten past five, so why is food denied me?”

I’m barely late with dinner and she’s eaten twice already,
Yet the accusing gaze is as demanding as it’s steady,
“I won’t be long, my girlie, give me just another minute…”
The competition’s on and we both know who’s going to win it.

She puts on the pathetic face, the one that’s never eaten,
Sucks in the cheeks and belly, knowing full well that I’m beaten.
I haven’t really eaten yet, but she’s had treats aplenty…
“Oh writer, only one or two…”, “Oh, small dog, nearer twenty!”

“I am so undernourished, see, I’m sure my ribs are showing…”
“Oh…

Love the sound of this book about Dog Walking. After reading the blog post below I simply had to download a copy for myself.

The Dog-walking Club

100hrtbk

Every dog walk brings new drama into the lives of these dogs and their people.

A supermarket shelf-stacker, a stay-at-home dad, an elderly widow and a freelance photographer sound an unlikely bunch of friends but they have one thing in common: they all walk their dogs in Beauville Park at roughly the same time each morning. And that’s enough for Angela, bored organiser without a cause, to get them together to form the Dog-walking Club.

For Jock the Scottie, Benji the spaniel, Pixie the boxer, Mitzi the poodle and Bassett the … all sorts, walking each day with their friends is a dream come true.

And it changes the lives of widowed Sybil who’s spent a lifetime hiding her secret sorrow, hopeless-with-women Jon who’s wandering almost unwittingly into an affair, freelance photographer Jemma who is at every wedding but her own, and Maggi who is frantically…
