I wandered lonely as a cloud
until my feet got wet.
I struggled through the 
undergrowth and found myself
beset by insects all around, 
my temper wholly spent,
to hell with yellow daffodils
and my predicament!

...with apologies to Mr Wordsworth!

    I think he would turn in his grave Keith! You're a cheeky laddie with this gem giving a totally new slice of humor to an old favorite. Sooo clever! Love, Lizzie

    nicely written Keith ;},,,, the title reminded me of little rascals, Brisbane learning the poem. The episode was called Reading and Writing. I have about 5- 6 tapes,, with 5-6 movies each on them. I bought them back in the 1980's for my daughter,, now my grand-daughter watches them. You can watch them on u tube;}, thank you for reading my " Tudor Court" ,,, and have a blessed New Year Keith ;}
