Sonnet 18 (abridged)


Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?


Thou art wet, depressing and prone to bluebottle.

Seems summer's lease hath much too short a date over there TFE.
Have great difficulty in getting your blog to move - it seems to jam up when I get on it. It has taken me ages (well 5 minutes) to get to the comments page. Perhaps it has gone rusty with all the rain you are having!

Thanks ,Jeanne, sometimes I rock ,sometimes I roll, but mainly I just fall over :)

Apologies for Gremlins, weaver, I fear the dead poets society are upset.Too, too much rain forsooth and yikes alas poor summer he is not well, in fact he's dead as a parott.Face it weaver summer is nowt but a misty eyed reminiscence of days gone by, ah well, tis better to have had a summer and then lost it than to have never have something or other,I can't remember.

Heather said...

Very well put and oh so true TFE. It's hammering down here at present, the only good thing being I won't have to water the plants in pots tonight. Never mind, it's what gives us our lovely green pastures and clear complexions. I have had trouble with your blog too, and so has MAB. Is there a leprechaun gumming up the works?

The Lesser Weevil said...

Ooooooo! You Do know how to make a girl go week at the knees. You smooth talking devil, you. With lines like this, one might be tempted to remark "I don't know what strange substances are available in Ireland, but he sonnet".

I have also had trouble with loading your blog sometimes - particularly those posts with larger photo's. But this one's been fine and, well, it's worth the wait!

Power to you oojamiflipsit.

Thanks, Heather, the weather(nice rhyme there!) was unreal today like being in a ship on trecherous seas with the rain pounding in bucketfulls on the windows.Hope your plant pots don't drown and apologies for bloggy gremlins/leprechauns, I'm sure WB and Co. are getting revenge.

Heather said...

I keep forgetting to say how much I like the photo you have for your header. I love country roads/lanes with grass growing up the middle. I always want to know where they lead.

Totalfeckineejit said...

Totalfeckineejit said...

Thanks Heather, glad ye likes it.That particular road leads down to Lough Mask in Co. Mayo.A lough into which I fell and almost drowned days later-I have at least one fall/accident per holiday :)

Hey, this is really a nice photo. Funny take on the Shakespeare. Thanks for the giggles.

Totalfeckineejit said...

The fact that it is half-time in the Munster final and my beloved Tipperary hurlers are winning and yet I is blogging is testament to thew seriousness of my blogging addiction. But still I gotta be brief.

Yes , Dave, it all , thank you kind man :)

Poetikat said...

Is it that bad? It's cool here, but for us, it's nice not to have the humidity and heat waves.

Totalfeckineejit said...

Worse summer ever , Kat, and we've had some really bad one's.Oceans of rain fell yesterday and it still managed to rain on and off all day today ;(

Jeanne Iris said...

WV: rantent: past tense of runtent. How one spent a camping vacation in Ireland. 'They rantent to tent trying to stay out of the rain.'

Yay Tipp! Go Blue and Gold! :-)

This past weekend, here in CT, the daytime weather has been lovely. We still have had barrels of rain, tho. Better than a drought, don't you think?

As I write this, I can hear a deer right outside my window, chewing. How cool is that? hmm...at least I think it's a deer...

Mad Aunt Bernard said...

And strewn with cowpats :-)

Poetikat said...

I just wanted to mention that Echo's "The Cutter" is probably one of my top 25 songs of all time.
