PIPPIN SWIPES A TRAIN!

My brother one time had named cats,

For THE LORD OF THE RINGS, like that…

Pippin and Merry,

Frodo was wary,

And sometimes had family spats.

An “HO” track in the table,

Ran it ’round when able…

Train went past–

Pippin swiped fast–

Leaving a boxcar disabled!

Pippin–that tiger-and-white,

Heard the crash and took flight…

We found later

The instigator

Underneath a sofa in fright.

–J.E.C.

(at least I think…it was Pippin?)

WHERE ARE THE FAERIES?

WHERE ARE THE FAERIES?

 

He’d love to see a faerie,

Cute and spiritedly merry…

But he sleeps in too late

To participate

In watching the river mist tarry.

By the time he is awake,

The marshes have begun to bake…

All faeries are gone,

Evaporated along

With the splash of a motorboat’s wake.
