Magpie #253

Photo by Elene Usdin
There once was a lass named Aphrodite
Who never left home without her nighties
Said she with a smile
I need them to beguile
So pack them all in my two Samsonites...

Many thanks to Tess Kincaid

  1. Of all the wonderful coupling of words and images you've provided, this just might be my favorite.

  2. very funny poem, but nightgowns take up little space when they are seductive, as are short and transparent.

  3. Nice words!
    She packed only nighties!
    She'll need extra suitcases for other clothes :)
