Is there room for one more ?

The WOODMOUSE rules are ...

Add a line to rhyme with the last line
and also a line of your own for the next person.

So carrying on ....

l hear a knocking at my front door
I hurry across the slippery floor

‘Who’s there ? ‘ I say and to my surprise

‘Who’s there ? ‘ I say and to my surprise
Just Druids awaiting the sunrise

It’s pretty parkie out here in the cold. 💨

Or maybe I'm just feeling old.

Would you like a cup of tea?

mrswoo Thu 30-Jan-20 22:10:32

Would you like a cup of tea?
Or something stronger - like whisky

Just say the word and I’ll fetch some ice

Gemini17892 Thu 30-Jan-20 22:22:38

Just say the word and I’ll fetch some ice
Do not move I’ll be there in a trice

Please sit down and take iff your coat

Please sit down and take iff your coat
Did you come by car or boat?

No we walked upon our feet

No we walked upon our feet
Now we desperately need a seat.

A cup of tea and slice of cake

WOODMOUSE49 Fri 31-Jan-20 15:03:51

A cup of tea and slice of cake
And feet up to ease an annoying backache

The Druids, having rested, bid farewell

Gemini17892 Fri 31-Jan-20 17:27:06

Hello WM 🐭 nice to see you 🙂

The Druids, having rested, bid farewell
And off they went down Dingley Dell

Right at the bottom they came to a gate

threexnanny Fri 31-Jan-20 17:42:37

Right at the bottom they came to a gate
The first one waited there for his mate

The pace is slower when you get older

Gemini17892 Fri 31-Jan-20 17:53:19

Right at the bottom they came to a gate
The first one waited there for his mate

The pace is slower when you get older
They each took a pill that made them bolder

Over the gate and up the hill

vampirequeen Fri 31-Jan-20 17:59:10

Over the gate and up the hill
Til they came to the water mill

And there they stopped just by a tree

JessK Fri 31-Jan-20 21:34:40

And there they stopped just by a tree
Dropped to the ground on one knee

Looking at the beautiful wild spring flowers

WOODMOUSE49 Fri 31-Jan-20 23:08:02

Gemini17892. Been away visiting lovely daughter.

Looking at the beautiful wild spring flowers
In between the persistent showers

Snowdrops are nodding their delicate heads

52bright Fri 31-Jan-20 23:24:35

snowdrops are nodding their delicate heads
mixed with spring daffs in the flower beds

Soon we'll say goodbye to winter

WOODMOUSE49 Fri 31-Jan-20 23:50:08

Soon we'll say goodbye to winter
I hope it goes out with a whimper

Or should we prepare for a final flurry of snow

Or should we prepare for a final flurry of snow
Sounds like it , heard it on News at 4

The weatherman likes to warn us in time
It's warmer in here making up a rhyme

I've got new boots , now must find my shovel

Gemini17892 Sat 01-Feb-20 17:20:56

I've got new boots , now must find my shovel
Everything here is in a very big muddle

Outside my primulas are looking great

mrswoo Sat 01-Feb-20 19:24:07

Outside my primulas are looking great
But if I want roses; I’ll have to wait

It won’t be long before they start to bloom

Pantglas2 Sat 01-Feb-20 19:34:46

It won’t be long before they start to bloom
They’ll add a certain va-va-voom

When they’ve been well manured

mrswoo Sat 01-Feb-20 20:37:36

When they’ve been well matured
I’ll push my luck and grow a gourd

And after that I’ll plant some peas

Gemini17892 Sat 01-Feb-20 22:22:58

And after that I’ll plant some peas
My neighbour helps me because of my knees

He’s very dishy and has a good heart

WOODMOUSE49 Sun 02-Feb-20 00:17:26

He’s very dishy and has a good heart
He deserves some of my homemade apple tart

The grass is starting to grow and grow

Pantglas2 Sun 02-Feb-20 07:52:07

The grass is starting to grow and grow
Pretty soon it’ll be ‘mow and mow’!

Another job on my list of chores
