For a while, I have been away from my nuttycraft. Life happened; Covid happened. But I have been saving my nut shells all along. Let’s hope new nutshell items will come again soon. Meanwhile, here’s something for you to enjoy.
Bringing you a few of the sweet little jingles, which are a great gift to me by Brother Brendan MacCarthaigh, octagenarian poet, writer, social worker, and academician. (Google him to know more.)
Good morning frog, you’re looking fat.
Makes me suspicious what you’re at!
Although you’re smaller than a cat
You’re noisier, and you sing flat!
Look at piggy’s button nose.
(Hard to see her tail and toes.)
“Going to market” I suppose,
To buy your friend a big red rose!
Of all your Happy Birthday wishes
Have you ever thought of fishes?
They never bother to wear britches,
And (ugh!) worms are their favourite dishes!
Tortoises can spread so wide
You rarely see them side by side.
But here our tortoise takes a ride:
Walk or swim? He can’t decide!
