...and they lived happily ever after. Smith & Lady: poets, artists, photographers & adventurers.
Our relationship was forged to the soundtrack of Yoko Ono's magic,
frenetic, love-laden song, "Walking On Thin Ice." ( play song )

Thimble Solution

a tisket a tusket a pink and yellow bucket

Thimble Solution

A thimble, a barrel, a bucket,
that’s what mom said,
carry what you can,
don’t let bucket put down thimble
or barrel belittle bucket
because bucket could tumble any time,
barrel not far behind,
don’t judge lighter load lesser
for head or heart could hurt
or body broken pain unspoken,
so carry what you can,
barrel by bucket,
thankful for the thimble.
