MAG 90




And so it came to that Autumnal day, dead leaves trumping red life, that only left me wanting Moore.
~Violet Louise Moorfields 1745

I love playing at Magpie Tales!

"Trumping" rocks, with its double meaning! (Plus, it has good mouthfeel.)

Ha! Thanks so much. I kept wanting to use the Moore, but I was so pressed for time, I used an old poem instead.

This was so much fun. K.

No more Moore, dear. Alas, forget Moore, lest less Moore distress Moore's lass.

Gawd. Ha!
