T stands for Termites Turtles and Toucans.

The Termite.

Some primal Termite knocked on wood     

And tasted it,  and found it very good !

 And that is why your cousin May

 Fell  through the floor today.

 (Ogden Nash).



 The Turtle.

The Turtle lives twixt plated decks

 Which practically conceals it's sex,

  I think it clever of the Turtle,

 In such a fix to be so fertile.     (Ogden Nash).

There was a TOUCAN named TIKKI

 Who lived in a house that was leaky

 So he wore a rubber hat

 And in the rain he sat

That silly old TOUCAN named TIKKI

  2. Lots of fun T words today Trubes! It was fun to read...

  3. These are terrific verses that could team up well to a tune. Blessings, my friend!

  4. Like Melody and almost everybody else, I don't like termites either. Turtles are interesting , aren't they.?! And Toucans are beautiful. When I lived in Indonesia, I saw them often.
    Yes Thanks for your comment. I also like the atmosphere Beatrix Potter created. especially her drawings. The Lake District is so beautiful and pure, and peaceful.
    Have a peaceful week.

  8. One time when I was in Baja California in a small boat I saw a face rise out of the water. My first thought was it was a very small scuba diver, but when my mind cleared a bit I realized it was a large sea turtle. - Margy
