A Poem, Dinosaurs and Berries

18 Jan

I loved my Thesaurus as I was growing up, given to me when I was, I think, nine years old and it stayed by my side for many years. In due course, it fell apart and I was given a shiny new copy.  Today is Thesaurus Day which commemorates the birth of Peter Mark Roget, born on this day in 1779 and author of Roget’s Thesaurus.  Here’s a poem to celebrate. It’s called ‘Roger’s Thesaurus’ and it is by Brian Bilston who published it on Twitter this morning.

I have given away our beautiful Dinosaur Muffin tin as our LiveWires have grown out of their Dinosaur phase. It has gone to a very good home.

I loved this tree on our walk – the spikiness of the branches, the softness of the lichen and the spherical little berries silhouetted against the sky.

    Ah, Roget’s! I still have my old copy from university days. What a wonderful poem! I read it out to everyone at breakfast and they enjoyed it too 🙂

      Glad to have passed this delight on to your family too. It made me smile and you too, I think. 🙂
