Merry, Merry!


Oh, to live in a world of Christmas revels and intrigue!

 A decorated evergreen to the ceiling and beribboned trinkets hidden deep within 
the steaming plum puddings!

Wassail and merriment and mysterious paper packages and mistletoe which does not go to waste.

 And a new ermine trimmed bonnet just for show!

THE PIRATE SHIP SEA GRACE


THE PIRATE SHIP SEA GRACE

Past the very edge of the Horizon
Where no live mate may dwell
Docks a pirate ship
That's oh, so grand
Or so the legends tell.

She floats in clear, blue waters
Off the sands of a tropical beach
And try as we might to find her
She's out of the live pirate's reach.

Her name be the Pirate Ship Sea Grace
And her one, great job it be
To welcome the fur and the hearts and the paws
Of our four-legged friends gone to sea.

They frolic and tussle and bound forth
They pillage and plunder it's true
For the ache in their auld bones has left them
And now they are waiting for you.

For when an old pirate takes his last breath
And crosses that far distant sea
The Sea Grace will be there for welcome
And your loyal matey will be there to greet thee.

Together again for eternity
Your Jolly Jack flying with pride
The wind in your hair
A wet tongue on your face
In your pirate ship fore'er side by side.

Posted this day for my Goat Sister, Teresa, from EDEN HILLS
and her loyal mate, Mushu, who did Go Gently and with Blessings this day.
Fair winds, Mushu, and a followin' sea, good boy.........

MAG 116: A Pirate Mag

image: River Irwell R.A.D. Stainforth

Standing precariously at the river's edge, bereft of pirate barque and sail,
I gaze at the blue void where my ship used to be.
Cold Irwell water seeps into the ruined sole of my old bucket boot as,
invulnerable though I be from my roving, I still find myself 
with the piercing cutlass of desire to round the bend.
~MF 2012

I LOVE PIRATES AND WRITING AND WRITERS AND PILLAGING WITH THE MAG!
