Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Another Thursday and another poem. This week Teddy and Angel Sammy provided this exquisite picture of a sailing ship. We had to think long and hard before we came up with a poem. We didn’t want to trivialize the majesty of this, but in the end that is exactly what happened.


Poem "Arrgh"



Each year on one special day
We think its fun to dress-up and play
At being pirates and scalawags.
We fly our skull & cross bone flags
When we board our magical ship.
Then from blog to blog we skip,
Saying, “arrgh” and swilling grog,
Hoping not to get lost in an ocean fog.
We take on silly pirate names
And search for booty that we can claim.
But the other 364 days of the year
From big bodies of water we try to stay clear.
It might be fun to see a great big whale,
But Kitties Blue don’t want to go for a sail.
Though this sailing ship looks mighty fine,
We’ll stay warm and dry on the coastline.

Thankful Thursday

We’d like to say we are thankful for the end of the eye “icks” but… Cooper Murphy finished his oral meds yesterday.  Unfortunately his eyes remain very squinty. We will continue the eye ointment for a few more days. Calista Jo is now on her second go round. We put ointment in her eyes last night and will see if we can get oral meds for her today without another trip to see Dr. Neel.

As for being thankful, we are. Astrid, Lisbeth and Giulietta remain uninfected.

We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday blog hop. To join the hop and let your fellow bloggers know for what you are thankful this week, click on the badge below.

I love that image; that’s a windjammer, with an almost full press of sails on! I’m getting seasick just looking…::shudder:: Here’s hoping the eye icks are now banished back from whence they came!

That is such a fun poem. Meow Like a Pirate is one of our favorite days. Hope those eye icks will be all gone real soon!

Teddy February 8, 2018 at 5:29 am

Arrrrrgh! Shiver me timbers that’s a mighty good poem! I think Angel Sammy will love this one…..he has lots of “Talk Like A Pirate Day” and this brings that all back. Thanks for always being poetic with us on Thursdays. We’re hoping those eye icks GIVE UP and leave your house soon. Our paws are crossed for that to happen!

Hugs, Teddy
