Messing About in Boats


                                                   
MESSING ABOUT IN BOATS


The lovely canals of England
Are splendid waterways,
They criss-cross the verdant country
Like a veritable maze.
And it's here Rob spends his summers,
Be there rain or be there shine,
Watching the world chug-chugging past
And drinking summer wine.
But now the summer's ended
And I'm sure he sheds a tear;
He'll have to live in a normal house
Until Spring comes next year.

LOL, I found myself actually taking the quiz. I can Imagine Brenda you must have made such a lovely teacher. The visual to the forst poem had me visualising you instead of Julie Andrews in 'Sound of Music'. Why? now dont begin to quiz me again..
