Il était un géant
Perdu sur une ile dans l'océan
Ses parents l'avaient abandonné là, enfant
Lorsqu'ils s'étaient aperçus qu'il devenait trop grand
Un jour, un bateau s'arrêta, il était empli d'un tas de gens
Escale à l'impromptue, ils n'avaient pas beaucoup de temps
Il leur proposa de visiter les alentours sur son dos comme à éléphant
La nouvelle se répandit dans le monde entier, on ne sait comment
Un gigantesque et rapide bouche à oreille, très certainement
Depuis, l'ile ne désemplit plus, un véritable engouement
Pour la photo,  ses bras sont devenus charmants
Des réalisateurs y tournent des films captivants
En bref, c'est une destination dans le vent
Et lui est heureux de ces amis fervents
Tout peut vous arriver simplement
quelques fois à pas de géant.....

A Short Story

The oaf had four friends. He liked to keep them close. Especially the woman he held dear.

He kept them close because he was afraid they might sail away if he did not cling.

His mentor would admonish him for this. But he paid no heed.

He clung on for dear life. His life. He loved his friends and was terrified they might one day leave him.
So he hung on.

His friends sometimes had troubles. They thought he didn't notice, but he did, after all he only had four friends.

They (his friends) had their own worries, and since he only had four friends, these became his worries too.

He carried their worries on his back everywhere he went. It hurt his back sometimes but he knew he was stronger than they were, so he did this out of love and loyalty.
Someday it might be their turn to "tote the weary load"

I am very excited and pleased to turn in my entry for the first "Show Offs" "Prompt Tuesday" writing exercise I hope you all like it.

The Dream

I found another land
And there I saw a sight
It filled me full of fear
But also with delight.

There stood a giant man
The others were so small
I didn't understand
Why was the one so tall?

They didn't notice me
They could not hear me call
I looked down at myself
I wasn't there at all!

Once Upon A Byway

Once upon my wandering way
I chanced upon a sight I say
I will remember 'til my dying day

Twas late in the month of April
The sky was cloudy the air was still
I heard a ruckus from over the hill

Was that the sound of blades clashing?
Lo, I hear rhetorical thrashing
And there, some maiden is laughing!

I had to know what that could be
But I was not ready for the sight to see
When first I peered into the lea

If I tell you to your face
Do not bury your mouth into your lace
And show mirth at my disgrace

For what I saw was real and true
As clear as now I am seeing you
Not madness as you may construe

There was a giant as tall as a larch
Upon which two fine young men with fine moustache
Dueled fiercely with faces harsh

In the giant's fearsome arm
Was gripped a beauteous dame
Her hair all gold, her dress like flame

Laughing merrily with much mirth
At the men fighting for all their worth
Like there is nothing odd on this earth

And there upon the great beast's hand
A balding dwarf boldly did stand
Arguing loudly with gestures grand

Using his intellect advanced
To berate the giant who is aghast,
about where they should go now, at last

Such great strangeness made me fear
That my eyes or mind where unclear
I really could use a nice cold beer!

So away I crept back to the road
And made my journey to my abode
And tried to forget this episode

So when you travel upon a byway
And you hear a ruckus or dismay
Put down your head and keep your way

Lest you should happen upon this crew
Who should they come and spy out you
Twould make a day that you would rue!

Instead put behind you their din
And hurry unto the nearest Inn
To toast your luck with a cheery grin!
