Michael Edwards




We hoped that snow would fall about

but all that fell was rain

and when King Wenceslas looked out

he soon went in again.

    He got that brolly - Good King Wotsit-lass?! Good write, lol.

    • Michael Edwards

      He had to go out in the end to collect the fuel!

    • orchidee

      Is he back home again now?!

      Cute snowman/fire drawing! Always love your artwork. Very cute poem!

      • Michael Edwards

        Thanks Kat - I always wondered why he stepped out in the first place and who the heck is that peasant and what's he got to do with the price of fish? Has the world gone mad. Does anyone know?

      • Louis Gibbs

        Who knew that King Wenceslas was a snowman! Cute write and sketch, Michael!

        • Michael Edwards

          I think he's melted into history - or is it legend?

        • FredPeyer

          Good one, Michael, and I can see myself in the sketch! But with our weather here, I'll be melted before the 24th!

            I'm so envious Fred - wish I was there now instead of cold wet UK.

                  Thanks Laura - I remember being a bit disappointed when I visited St Wenceslas Square in Prague although I love the City.
