DRINKA PINTA DAY ~ An Acrostic Sonnet





Real encouragement to drink MILK

I love MILK and drink a litre !

Nobody I know is Milk-free !

KOW'S MILK is OK for humans

At Christmas I "Send a Kow" !


PEOPLE who are undernourished ~ are

In need of MILK ~ Fats ~ Carbs ~ Protein

Necessary Vitamins and Minerals ~ All

The CALCIUM a Child needs for Bones

And Teeth ~ A perfect food for ALL AGES


Daily feeding on Mummy Milk ~ Ensures

A BABY will develop ~ Or Formula Milk

You can help supply to the Undernourished !


Thanks for visiting ~ comments welcome ~ Love BRIAN


SEND A COW is an International Organisation to ensure

that Families in Underdeveloped Countries ~ recieve a

COW which enables them to provide milk for growing

Children.  They can also breed calves for sale and also

for meat. I send my Friends a share in a Cow for Lesotho

for Chritsmas instead of a Cardigan they will never wear !

Why not "SEND A COW THIS CHRISTMAS" so everyone



This POEM is presented as a Blank Verse  6 5 3

Acrostic Sonnet ~ Enjoy ~ Yours BRIAN XOXOX

    Good write Brian. Ooh, but I wanted a nice cardy. Send them the needed cow, and send me the cardy! lol.
    A pint of sherry for me please (??)!!


      Thanks STEVE ~ When you subscribe £50 to "Send a Cow" you specify how many Cards you want (i.e. 5) You then send your Friends the card telling them they have a share in a COW ! The card will feature a COW not a ROBIN ~ but remember they did share a Bedroom with Baby JESUS so it is Scriptural ! You can always have a wee dram o' single malt In your hot milk at night ! Yours BRIAN

        Ahh yes - and would there have been snowy scenes there at the time of Jesus\' birth? Don\'t know what season it was there then. I think I\'ve sent a chicken or something else some years. Makes sense, as does the cow. I shall get me Horlicks out tonight! Erm, I didn't quite get the point. You meant MILK, not sherry! lol.

        For babies, mother milk is the BEST! Nice write, Brian, and thank you for reminding everybody that the time to give is now.

        • BRIAN & ANGELA

          YES INDEED FRED ~ Mummy Milk does contain special ingredients (missing in Cow's Milk) so initially it is BEST ! In some Developing Countries some mothers are too undernourished to lactate so we have to provide Baby Milk Formula or a COW ! If I'm honest I don't need anything (for CHRISMAS) so I m happy to share in a COW (or a Beehive or a Flock of Sheep etc) instead of socks ~ bottle of Sherry ~ books etc ! Now is the time to GIVE ~ Yours BRIAN

          A very good write! love the style of this

          • BRIAN & ANGELA

            Thanks Shannon ~ pleased you liked the style. Technically a basic Sonnet must have 14 likes ~ the length of the verses and the presence or absence of rhyme is arbitrary. If the lines are co-syllabic it is called Blank Verse if not Free Verse (Blank Verse has more rhythm ~ OK). For An Acrostic Sonnet the Word or Phrase (in this example DRINKA PINTA DAY) must have 14 letters ~ OK ! Creamy Hugs ~ BRIAN XXX

            Very good write Brian. Your heart is always in the right place during Christmas and throughout the year! Sisterly hugs-Christina

            • BRIAN & ANGELA

              Thanks CHRIS ~ As Christians we always have to positive and encouraging ~ on a Open Site like MPS ~ It is part of our WITNESS ! Thanks for your encouragement ~ Creamy Hugs from your Spiritual Brother BRIAN @@@@@@@ (seven perfect hugs ~ one for each day of next week !)
