An Ode to a Ferrett

Ok I know this is normally my Craft Talk blog but sometimes I think of someone or see something and a poem or a ditty or an Ode just pops into my head, I write it down immediately or it has gone - they aren't always good but they are usually quite personal to a particular subject or person. So good or rubbish (I  never really know myself) this just popped into my head and was written down in about 5 minutes - so don't expect too much.

fOR Eileen Goodwin and Ken
by Sam Crowe

Snowflake is a Ferret, a very lucky one too, you could say she's treated like roaylty compared to me and you.  Eileen is in dis-belief as her Hubbbie panders to her, the Ferret you fool, Not Eileen, on his list she is much lower.  Snowflake had run away to search for a better life and now she lives in luxury, a life free of trouble and strife. 

 Although there was a slight problem with her bedding, it wasn't lush? She now likes her new one much better simply because it says Shssssss.

We all fell in love with Snowflake from her days living in the shower,
she enjoyed a finger or two of Kens' Ow, Ooooowww,  Ooooowwwer!!!
Holly and Daisy were in awe just for a little while,
and when the Ferret got a name we all gave a little smile! 
She's a "Keeper" we said on FB Oh how happy we were,
but Eileen kept trying to say "no were not keeping her"!!!! 
Then Sadly her owner was found all our hearts just sunk to the ground!
We were gutted and angry and sad, till the owner said "Aw you can keep her lad"
or something like that???
And so the Saga continues, like I say Eileen's in dis-belief,
as Ken now has plans to build a "Playground" so the dogs walk is brief!!
So we are excited to hear the rest of this lovely story of Joy -
Maybe one day our Snowflake will find a handsome boy!!??  Mmmmmm Ferret Babies?
 So thank you Eileen for keeping us entertained,
and Ken, what about a plaque to get her officially named?
To Snowflake we thank you so much,
even my kids ask me how you are doing,
and to the lady who found the owner we do apologise for booing??? 
To be continued.......???



    hasn't it been a good story!!

    1. Its so uplifting isn't it, and the Ferret looks so funny in the pics as if to say whats all the fuss about?

  2. You rock Sam.... I laughed and laughed. Soooooooo funny and flippin brilliant. Snowflake has found her way into everyone's heart ... I was very touched at all the support we received on FB when we found her owner and almost had to give her back ... Got admit here that Ken would have been more gutted than me but now she is settling down she is very amusing to watch when she is playing .. it is also very noticeable to see 'a bond' of trust developing between her and Ken. (That means she dose not bite him so hard now!!! lol)
    Thanks for your 'ditty' it took time and has pleased me no end... Going to make sure Ken sees it ... he will be tickles 'pink' ! xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
