Bart's Heart


Bart’s Heart

Perhaps you know someone who is a little like our fine (though fictional) friend Bart. Maybe you have even had Bart-like moments of your own. Perhaps we all have . . . 

Over the Moon

A wealthy old fellow named Bart,
Though dandy, was daft – bless his heart.
His marbles he lost.
His cookies he tossed.
And Bart hitched his horse after cart.

Then one early spring afternoon,
To follow the phase of the moon,
Old Bart tipped his cap,
 Set off without map
And vanished from sight far too soon.

  9. I'm thinking this is a lot like stories you hear with those suffering from Alzheimer's. Hope Bart is okay ---even if it is a fiction piece.

    Mine this week is another 'non-fiction' fictionalized version. Butt to naked butts

    Have a great weekend.

  16. That was an awesome Limerick. I just don't seem to be able to think in Limerick so it's fun to find someone who can. :))
