Letter is T, for Turtles

I am very busy Threading and Treadling 
in the loom room, 
but Ogden Nash to the rescue!!

The turtle lives 'twixt plated decks
Which practically conceal its sex.
I think it clever of the turtle
In such a fix to be so fertile.

For more interesting Ts visit here
at ABC Wednesday
with thanks to Roger, Denise and Leslie
and their terrific helpers.

Wow, Hildred thanks for these interesting photos. The turtles have interesting lives. We don't know much about a turtle's life.

Today is my poetry meeting Hildred. This made me smile - I am tempted to read it.
