thesaurus


Some dinosaurs sang in a chorus:
“Historians will surely ignore us
unless we use words
to fly, just like birds.”
So the chorus became a thesaurus.

Inspired entirely by my six-year old granddaughter Eve, Ada’s older sister (about 5 minutes older) who called me up this afternoon to tell me she had a joke to tell me. Actually it was a riddle, but she called it a joke.

“Grandpa, what do you call a dinosaur which has a lot of books? ”

“I don’t know, Eve.”

“A thesaurus, ”

I remember when Abigail and Absalom were talking about dinosaurs at about the same age tender age people would ask how: “How on earth do they know about dinosaurs? ”

What wonders will the generation after Eve perform?

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
