2006-07-29: They Danced by the Light of the Moon

What is Runcible Spoon?

'Dear pig, are you willing to sell for one shilling
    Your ring?' Said the Piggy, 'I will.'
So they took it away, and were married next day
    By the Turkey who lives on the hill.
They dined on mince, and slices of quince,
    Which they ate with a runcible spoon;
And hand in hand, on the edge of the sand,
    They danced by the light of the moon,
          The moon,
          The moon,
They danced by the light of the moon.

I always loved Edward Lear's charming little nonsense story about an owl and a cat falling in love, sailing away to an exotic island, and celebrating their honeymoon by dancing on a moonlit beach.

This weblog is dedicated to the spirit of beauty, joy, love, and silliness evoked by that poem. The type of creativity I seem to participate always seems to involve those qualities in spades.
