  3. Namaste Sammi, 🙂

    Hoping all is well on his bright fresh Saturday: it almost feels like spring is here but for the coolness in the air – Siberian air blowing in from the icy realms. I’ve got the thick coat out of storage, grabbed the scarf and gloves as well, I’m hoping not to get to cold or catch a little chill.

    My entry for today’s challenge as follows: a bit of fun 🙂

    ~ Matters of the Heart ~ By ~ Dewin Nefol ~
    What is the matter with the Mad Hatter?
    Why is he looking so glum?
    Does he not know it’s tea-time?
    Will he not go have some fun?
    “I would verily attend the tea-party,”
    “But for my top hat,” said he.
    “It just won’t shine when I apply rhyme.”
    “And that will never do you see.”
    “Not now not ever not at any tea-time,”
    “Will the Hatter ever be without rhyme: for Alice.”
    “With no words for my saccharine chalice!”
    “Sugar-coated Alice,” said he, “she is my perfect cup of tea.”
    “Now where did I put the liquid mercury?”

    Enjoy your afternoon and the rest of the weekend. Take care of one and all.

    Namaste 🙂
