    "Olive Ewe"

    He gave her a sheep painted green,
    The strangest thing she'd ever seen,
    It made her heart shift
    to receive such a gift,
    But what could his thoughtfullness mean.

    The grin on his face wildly grew,
    Just to see her confused it was true,
    For on Christmas day
    she heard him to say
    Remember my dear olive ewe.



    Blessings

    Good one, Sally! I've tried limericks and just can't seem to get the hang of them. Ewe, however, have done a marvelous job with this one! TY for posting and for the smile it brought!

    the EWE - the EWE :sheeplove:

    Hey SALLY - Limerick is one of my favorites - especially around the holiday season... This one is cute - but has a distinct message intact...

    I would take it to mean "olive ewe" as a means of reaching out with LOVE. Not of the sexual variety, but rather of the "everlasting brotherhood/sisterhood, friendship" type... An "olive branch" persee

    Would do the world a bit of good to remember the essence of Christmas is more than Black Friday's and seeing who can buy the most expensive Xmas gift lol

    Enjoyed this one - hope I didn't read to much into it lol
    Thanx for sharing it with us!

    Jacquii.

    Dear Ms Roberts,

    I simply loved this as it is tis the season as well. From the grin that widely grew, and his enlightenment in her confusion lends itself to the overlying message in this piece. The gift of giving. How clever? This was wonderful. Was there a particular reason why the ewe was the chosen animal? At any rate, thank you for sharing.
