Whimsical Wednesday 5 October 2011


Seeking all things autumn like...... dancing with whimsy.....and those things which don't rattle too many bones

Oh Mr. Scarecrow Man

Mr. Scarecrow-Man

Of the crops
On duty-
So bold and proud
Just scaring around
Is your duty-
To scare away birds
Like crows and sparrows
And such
What you must do
Mr. Scarecrow-Man
On duty-
Is defend all around
As you guard
Both day and night…..

Thanks for stopping by for a spot of whimsy and rhyme....and if you too want to play or submit your own

Snowcatcher said...

Did you write the poem? And draw the picture? You brought back memories of Oz... I haven't seen that movie in SOOOOOOO long!

Snowcatcher- I did draw and color, (actually picked the drawing up again after a few years) and finished it yesterday! I got the idea from a children's book...and threw the poem in (my own just this morning) to go with Mr. Scarecrow....I'm quite the fan of scarecrows...and have quite a few around outside!

NatashaMay said...

the scarecrow is never off duty. that he never gets a break might make him crazy:)
good stuff.

Max said...

I'm impressed. Great drawing, very whimsical yet creepy scarecrowish. Nice poem too. Thanks for posting them.

Karen: I am partial to scarecrows. Whenever I see one, I relive some great childhood moments (My wife's aunt was Margaret Hamilton).

The house manager at the group home where my two autistic sons live does a great job with the garden, complete with a wonderful scarecrow wearing my sons' old clothes!

I love it! You're so creative!

Karen S. said...

JJ. Oh my goodness JJ the woman we all grew to love/hate/love so much in one movie! That is simply so very cool! I bet your wife has so many stories...when my daughter was growing up (well still really) she was so crazy about the Wizard of Oz....we even saw Wicked in London! Wow, just imagine being her niece...!
