Wednesday Words

For today's Wednesday Words, I have chosen some classic Milligan.


I like Spike Milligan.  He was a very capable poet, comedian and writer.  He had a tremendous sense of humour and didn't take himself too seriously, as can be seen from his epigraph.

He also wrote some very good, very short poems. (He wrote some very good, very long poems too!)

For example....

There's holes in the sky
Where the rain comes in.
But they are ever so small
That's why rain is thin.


I must go down to the seas again
To the lonely sea and the sky.
I left my socks and shoes there
I wonder if they're dry?

Which is clearly a take on next weeks poem!  So there's a clue for you!

What will it be? Leave me a comment if you think you know - it's one of my favourite poems ever.

Much love needs to go to crazywithtwins, the immensely clever lady invented Wednesday Words, and who is still acting like a Twilight extra, and should she continue, I think I shall inform Equity......

Oooh that is going to get me thinking now! I want to guess... but it hasn't come to me yet! lol.

Loving this poem. That is an awesome idea for why rain is long and thin! I'm looking forward to next weeks now! Thanks for linking up again and for the Twilight love! xx

oh yes, I love Milligan, such classic words. I aspire to be even a tiny bit as good.
