The weeks might be going by faster
but they sure are taking up more fabric mileage!
The clouds rolled in on Monday
We were lucky to be on the edge of Sandy
luckily relatives in New Jersey are fine
without power, but fine
On Halloween the Rusty Pups turned five
five pumpkins and five bones
On Thursday Diane and I made marks in sketchbooks
For Friday I was thinking that Sandy's dense clouds nearly touched the treetops
Over the weekend I needed some colour
Solid clouds still overhead
When will the sun come back?
I said my weeks were using up much more fabric
The scratched scroll from July until now is much larger
than the first half of the year
I still have two months to go.
And it's November fifth
a day never forgotten by us Brits!
The fifth of November,
The Gunpowder treason and plot;
I know of no reason
Why the Gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot!
Guy Fawkes and his companions
Did the scheme contrive,
To blow the King and Parliament
All up Alive.
Threescore barrels, laid below,
To prove old England's overthrow.
But by God's providence, him they catch,
With a dark lantern, lighting a match!
