Hehehe...right there with there, from sowing the seeds to scaring the deer!

Perhaps there'll be a sequel come Springtime, eh!!?

This is destined to be as much of a classic as the original. I love this poem and I can just picture it all...And I don't know how you made all those Latin names fit like that. You're a Master Wordsmith!

Thanks for the smile tonight. =D

A familiar poem by Clement Clark Moore, "Twas' the Night Before Christmas," was published for the first time on December 23, 1823 by a New York newspaper, the Sentinel. Since then, the poem has been reprinted, translated into innumerable languages and circulated throughout the world.

Likewise, a poem by Dea O'Hopp, "Twas' the night before sowing," was published for the first time on December 24, 2007 in Dave's Garden, a reknown and vibrant community of 341,914 members. Since then the poem has circulated in a common language throughout the world!

A literary work of art -- charming, innovative, and darn right cute. Way to go, Dea!!!
