the Sun shown bright upon the sea it glistened and sparkled with glee but near twilight it said to me as i sat in my boat with three “I bid you goodnight as I leave, and warn you of the evil Tlea! A creature of death that is He. Your demise; by him it will be!” the Sun’s grave warning we did heed we sat perplexed, what did he mean while He sank, we heard a strange scream miles from home, the land of Smeeth lost in thought of the evil Tlea our death; by him would surely be
we sailed away on our wee boat slowly losing all sense of hope no land to see within my scope we drifted on, we didn’t know where we were or which way to go the Moon called to us, “You there, Ho! To be free, faster you must row. Those pure of heart will make it home, if you are not, Hell you will roam!” another warning, this is so but we still have not seen our foe all these cautions but a no show is this all real, how do we know Tlea will not keep us from home
a noise rang out across the sea the Moon had gone, too dark to see “Who here wishes to pass by me?” a cold, rough voice called from beneath “To pass one must first be received, by the great and all mighty Tlea!” “Forgive us!”, i called out to He “Did not mean to disturb your sleep!” “You there the booming one who speaks, I foresee your future is bleak. Tonight your life I’ll take from Thee!” “DO NOT TAKE ME!!”, i beg and plead by morning the boat held just three thanks to Tlea of the dark South Sea
Today’s Wacky Wednesday is filled with many holidays. This could be the most we’ve had in one day since starting on this wacky adventure. But first, we have our wacky words. Our first word is a noun from medieval days. A Quire is four sheets of paper or parchment folded to form eight leaves, as in medieval manuscripts. Most books today are comprised of several quires and are then stitched and glued together. Ratoon is another noun referring to a new shoot or sprout springing from the base of a crop plant, especially sugar cane, after cropping.
Now the many holidays. Let’s get our token food holidays out of the way. It’s National Cinnamon Raisin Bread Dayand National Guacamole Day. I don’t recommend mixing the two. It’s also National Stepfamily Day and National Working Parents Day. If you want more fun, today is National Play-Doh Day. It is also Mayflower Day, commemorating when the ship set sail from Plymouth, England on September 16, 1620. But enough about uptight white people. Today is also Mexico’s Independence Day. Cinco de Mayo is often confused for this holiday, but it was September of 1821 when Mexico won their independence from Spain.
The wind scratched my face Like dragon’s breath My horse fell and died From too much heat My armor removed Too hot to wear – This enchanted stone Keeps me alive It conjures water Into being I hunt with my sword Enough to live – Banished to this land I could not kill The river serpent That cunning demon Plagues my kingdom – The enchanted stones Hold the power To vanquish evil But I have one – One mage can find them The Algonquin Will I live in time To find the stones
