V stands for Verse, and Virus.
There was an old man of Vesuvious
Who studied the work of Vitruvious
When the flames burnt his book
To drinking he took
That morbid old man of Vesuvious !
The Old Man Of Vienna.
There was an old man of Vienna
Who lived on a tincture of Senna
When that did not agree,
He took Camomile tea
That nasty old Man of Vienna.
The above Nonsense Verses are from one of my favourite poet's collection,
Edward Lear, reknown for his writing
of silly limericks .
My apologies for the meagre offering re my introduction but I have been struck low with a nasty Virus, it has erupted like Mount Vesuvious ( see picture above at the beginning) . So it's back to bed, now that I've managed to scramble this together.
Best wishes Di.
My sincere thanks to the vivacious Denise for devising ABCW and the veritable Roger for doing what he does each week with such valour. Thanks also to the team of helpers who assist Roger with the visits to other contributors.
