how do you solve a problem. . .

like the view?

"She climbs a tree and scrapes her knee


Her dress has got a tear
She waltzs on her way to us and whistles on the stair


And underneath her black cap she has colour in her hair!


I've even heard her singing in the comments. . .

She's always late to read our posts, but her interest is fun
She's always late for everything, she's late for everyone

I hate to have to say it but I very firmly feel
The View is not an asset to the rabble"

"I'd like to say a word on her behalf:
The View makes me laugh!"

(HA HA HA)

"How do you solve a problem Like The View?
How do you catch a cloud and pin it down?
.


How do you find a word that means The View?
A flibbertajibbit? A will of a whisp?


A clown?

(segues momentarily into:
Clowns to the left of me
Jokers to the right,
Here I am - stuck in the middle of The View)


Many a thing you know you'd like tell her
Many a thing she ought to understand
But how do you make her stay? And listen to all you say?
How do you keep a wave upon the sand?



Oh how do you solve a problem Like The View?
How do you hold a moonbeam in your hand?"


"When I'm with her I'm confused
Out of focus and bemused
And I never know exactly where I am"

"Unpredictable as weather


She's as flighty as a feather


She's a darling! She's a demon! She's a lamb. . ."

"She'd out pester any pest
Drive a hornet from its nest


She can throw a twirling dervish out of whirl


She is gentle - she is wild - she's a riddle - she's a child
She's a headache - she's an angel. . .


She's a girl. . ."


"How do you solve a problem Like The View?
How do you catch a cloud and pin it down?


How do you find a word that means The View?
A flibbertajjibet, a will of a wisp, a clown. . .


Many a thing you know you'd like to tell her
Many a thing she ought to understand
But how do you make her stay?


And listen to all you say
How do you keep a wave upon the sand?


Oh how do you solve a problem Like The View?
How do you hold a moon beam in your hand?"

That made me laugh!

Mel said...

I'll have you know I'm now whistling THIS one!

R&H would be honoured, I'm sure.

Ha! I knew this was a trick question.

We can't solve a problem Like The View, we can only enjoy the The View and understand The View from our own perspective as best we can, for The View is a natural wonder of this world that holds truth for us to learn in those fleeting moment that we are able to understand The View as a view.

Asking "How do you solve a problem Like The View" kind of assumes that one sees a problem in the first place.

I see no such problem!

mig bardsley said...

I am enchanted by the view.

Gordie said...

You are the kind of problem a philosophical man could wrestle with.

Mel said...

<---whistling and humming

(and agreeing with steg.....no need to solve a problem that's truly not 'a problem')

<--still thinks R&H would be PROUD
