Last week, our poem was inspired by our host Angel Sammy. Now we're moving on to the letter T, and since Sammy's little brother Teddy is an inspiration as well, we have this to share:
Teddy the Teacher
Wisdom and knowledge,
These can be gained whether in preschool or college.
But there is one most important piece to this puzzle,
And that is the teacher who plants seeds in minds,
Like a gardener with a shovel,
Who can nurture blooms of all kinds.
Teddy the Teacher is just one of many,
Yet his worth is far more than that of a penny.
His pupils he guides on their path,
Whether it be in history, spelling, or math.
Teddy the Teacher can give lessons on microbes,
And can even teach you the continents of the globe.
Young or old,
Students need teachers to expand their minds tenfold.
Whether they learn fast or learn slow,
Students need teachers like Teddy in order to grow.
Teddy the Teacher may be one of many,
But without teachers like him we students would be lacking plenty.
Do be sure to visit the real Teddy! And of course we didn't forget to doodle a little something up for Teddy the Teacher.
One last thing with regards to poetry. We're wondering if any of you can help us with a couple of the upcoming weeks of the Thoroughly Poetic Challenge? You see, perhaps this silly human's mind is just having a brain fart, but we need a little assistance with the upcoming letters U and X. As you've probably noticed by now, we quite like to use you blogging friends of ours as inspiration for our poems. But, we can't seem to conjure up any blogging buddies with names that begin with U or X. We hope we're not just being silly and forgetting any of you. If we are, though, please let us know! We have a couple of ideas in the case that no U or X can be found, but we sure would like to know what you all have to say first. Thank you, friends!
And now it is Thimble's turn to star in this Thursday post.
One of Thimble's favorite things to do is help her momma doodle up some art. Actually, though, that's not what was really going on in that picture up there. This here human was trying to photograph those there doodles in order to share them with you here on our blog. When Thimble hears the camera, though, she simply has to be involved. After all, she is a model.
Are any of our friends out there like Thimble? Do you love to
Today, Thimble is sharing her gratitude for the camera and for her supremely photogenic face for Brian's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.
All of us here are thankful for all of the blessings in our lives. We are thankful that our pup Astrid was deemed cancer-free this week. We are thankful to have each other, to have the safety of a warm home, to have food in our bowls, and to have loving family and friends like all of you.
Happy Thursday to all of you wonderful friends of ours!
Our Tip of the Day:
Are you interested in giving your furbaby a fun little "candy" or "chocolate" treat, such as for Halloween? One safe option is to look for treats made with carob. You can also obtain carob and make your own treats for your pup or even your kitty. This is because carob is an alternative to cocoa and chocolate that is safe for dogs and cats. It has a taste and appearance more or less comparable to chocolate, but does not contain theobromine, the component of cocoa and chocolate that is toxic to dogs and cats. That means carob can allow your furbaby, such as pups who have a sweet tooth, to have a special yet safe treat.
