Wanderlust

bismuth-3

All that is Gold
Does Not Glitter

Not All Those Who Wander
Are Lost ~

The Old that is Strong
Does not Wither

Deep Roots are Not Reached
By the Frost.

      I would love to one day wander around a bismuth maze!

      • I’ll see what I can conjure. I gave up on mazes when I walked in to my nose.

        Hey wait, isn’t “Majik” your thing?

        • Mazes are fun! Especially playing Hide ‘n Seek in a mirror maze- try to find the real person and not a reflection.

          I’m a little hesitant when it comes to magic. To quote Terry Pratchett:

          ‘People who used magic without knowing what they were doing usually came to a sticky end. All over the entire room, sometimes.’

        • That does sound like fun! So there’s a containment issue with magic. This is why you stick to what you know works, “M A J I K”, or so I’m told.

  4. Not all that’s Silver will glitter
    Not every bird likes to twitter
    The end of Sir Pratchett was tragic
    Ravens are called to bring Magick

  5. “The old that is strong does not wither?”
    Isn’t that wishful thinking?

  6. Tum ti ti tum ti ti tum ti,
    Tum ti ti tum ti ti tum…
    Okay, I got this.

    Lonely, a Bear I have wandered
    Seeking for all that was lost
    Youth that is spent is not squandered
    Wisdom is gained for the cost

    I’m sure I could go on, and some part of me delights in throwing up obscene rhymes when confronted with such a formal style. Maybe it’s my raw, wild, animal nature… oh yes, I’m a Bear.

    Not all my wealth can be minted
    Not all I’m thinking is rude
    Not all I say can be printed
    “Nice” and “Polite” can get… lost?

    • “Lonely, a Bear I have wandered… Wisdom is gained for the cost…”

      Quite frankly, I think even Tolkien would be proud!

      (… after which a cheeky unknown adds ‘Exit pursued by a Bear’…)
