Do you read the comments on blog posts? If not, you should. Because you can find some wonderful gems there. Reacting to one of the links in yesterday’s Weekly Round-up, Kathy Jones has written one of her inimitable odes again. It would be a shame to keep it hidden in the comments, and therefore I have copied and illustrated it appropriately for your perusal here:
I remembered that Kathy had written another ode in the comments recently, and when I set about finding it, I came across not just *one* ode, but *two*. This one was written in reference to RA’s selfies and harks back to RAPS #116:
And lastly, here is a gem on lips, by Kathy, in reaction to this RAPS and post from March 2016:
At this point, Kathy could actually publish a whole collection of odes!!! Maybe we should do that – collect them all, print them in a nice book, and present them to Mr A. (I wonder who would feel more uncomfortable about that – Mr A or Kathy 😉 )
Anyhow, if you would like to while away your May Day, you could check out previous lyrical posts by fans. As early as 2014, Kathy wrote an ode to Thorin’s pelt, and Hedgehogess retaliated in German (translation available, too), HERE. The next day, Teuchter created an ode to a beard and Hedgehogess and CraMERRY went poetic on Sir Guy. HERE. And Hedgehogess and yours truly waxed lyrical HERE. More recently, Kathy kicked off a flurry of odes on Servetus’ blog. Head over to the comments on Servetus blog post from 20 January 2016 which contain a couple of Jones gems. Also, Jennifer, who writes the PreoccupiedWithArmitage blog, is the master of the Limerick and has written a number of those about Richard. You can find them HERE. (I am missing other contributions, I am sure. Sorry. If you want them included, let me know in the comments and I’ll make a proper link list in a separate post!)
If you feel “inspiRAd”, don’t hold back 🙂 . You can add your contribution in the comments below (and I will illustrate it and add it to this post), if you haven’t got a platform of your own.
