Katy S – LMAO – the funniest day you can remember
Katy P – Ladles and jellyspoons – tell me your favourite poem
Fiona – Letter – write a letter to the world
Well, sorry Katy but as we discussed yesterday, abbreviations like ‘lmao’ and ‘rofl’ make me feel a little dirty, not in a good way, so I shan’t be selecting your theme. And Peg, I between the message in a bottle and letter to your 13 year old self I’m all lettered out so…today I choose my theme!
Here it is:
Escape at Bedtime by Robert Louis Stevenson.
The lights from the parlour and kitchen shone out
Through the blinds and the windows and bars;
And high overhead and all moving about,
There were thousands of millions of stars.
There ne’er were such thousands of leaves on a tree,
Nor of people in church or the Park,
As the crowds of the stars that looked down upon me,
And that glittered and winked in the dark.
The Dog, and the Plough, and the Hunter, and all,
And the star of the sailor, and Mars,
These shown in the sky, and the pail by the wall
Would be half full of water and stars.
They saw me at last, and they chased me with cries,
And they soon had me packed into bed;
But the glory kept shining and bright in my eyes,
And the stars going round in my head.
Peg is now up to day 10 so…by my calculations (remember no points for choosing your own theme, and some days Lauren blogged too so there were 4 points up for grabs) the scores are:
Katy S: 9 Katy P: 13 Peg: 8
