by Rondo, chronicler, poet and mischief maker
It has been a long time, a VERY LONG Time since we have had the scribe activate those long digits of hers and put our tales into a blog. Our apologies.
We still have to complete the return episode of our delinquent Miss Whiskers' escapade to Austria but let's leave that for another day, shall we?.
In the meantime I, Rondo, poet and chronicler of family mischief plan to take over this medium for my ramblings. We'll see how long that lasts with this fickle family of mine but for today and the near future... I'm the family spokescat and think I shall start with ME as the topic.
Now you may not know but I am a poet. Yes, this has been downplayed somewhat in the past. BUT... You must know I am a sensitive guy. I love to sing and talk. If you were unaware then, somewhere in our past blogs it has been touched on should you desire to investigate.
Briefly though, the five AM morning gathering of the neighbourhood birds and our family to wake Grammy was my idea and I have done and continue to carry it out frequently - most often in spring and summer when the windows are open. Well, I'll have you know these morning vespers go paw in paw with poetry... whether rhyming or free-style. Yes, they do. At least in my estimation they do.
And so, without further ado I give you a poem about my favourite topic, ME. (Just kidding, bees and birds are my favourite topics.) but I'm up there near the top of the list.
An Ode to Me - Rondo
Of rhyming words and lilting cheer
Singer, poet and balladeer
Rondo am I - big and round.
I spout my ditties and love the sound
Of birds 'n bees of which I write
About their work while still in flight.
Of hum and buzz while on the wing,
I love to dream and then to sing!
Oh dear friends, we love to hear your thoughts and comments so please don't hesitate.
Please keep it light and lots of fun
And we'll respond when you are done.
