The Hat
THE HAT
by
David Pirkle
Professor Parniferous Pirkle
Had his own favorite hat.
A derby that hung on his bedpost,
And sometimes on a coat rack.
He wore it for breakfast.
He wore it for lunch.
He wore it sometimes
Even for brunch.
Wherever he went
It would be on his head.
"That is a very nice hat!"
People said.
He had it since he was a baby,
As a cradle in which he would nap.
Not an IF, AND, or MAYBE.
He looked like a splendid old chap.
But one windy day,
His hat blew away.
He chased it down,
As it flew around the town,
While Parniferous
shouted out "HEY!!"
It zigged and it zagged,
It flipped and it flopped.
It danced through the air
On a breeze.
It stopped for a rest,
In a songbird nest,
Before it took flight,
As quick as you please.
It floated and sailed,
Through the streets of the vale,
The airborne derby,
Was something to see,
With Parniferous hot
on its tail.
When the wind died down,
The hat touched ground,
In the lap of a
Charming young lass.
"What a lovely old hat!"
She said as it

Moss Herder Visit
While out checking the mail, I saw this little visitor. A Moss Herder was making his rounds of keeping the moss under control.
I don't think that he saw me. I almost missed seeing him. He stood about 12" tall.(Taller than the average Moss Herder)
When I came back with the mail, he was gone.
No rest for the magical beings as Spring begins, I suppose! :)

When the wind died down,
The hat touched ground,
In the lap of a
Charming young lass.
"What a lovely old hat!"
She said as it sat,
And they spoke as
the time quickly passed.

His hat, as it were,
Was a favorite for her,
And she placed it
Back onto his head.

Not that much later,
For a time, he did date her,
And he wore it on
The day they were wed.

Mrs Parniferous Pirkle,
Had her own favorite hat,
Attached to a chap,
And not in her lap,
On a post it hung,
Next to their bed.

Interests
I've just started a new Kickstarter fund-raising campaign for my children's book "Professor Parniferous Pirkle and his PrecociousPixies". Donations can be as little as $1 and you'd still get something out of your contribution that will assure your immortality among the pixies and sprites of Hedgerow Hollow.

Should you not be able to help stat this wonderful project, you would do me a great service by passing this information throughout the realms to those that would brave the adventures along with the Professor and his companion, Sunny, the Illuri Wood Sprite as they search for ancient magic and lost loved ones in the lands of Hedgerow Hollow. :)

I really feel like I've found a new home to play in here. I've got so many more pieces of art, sculpture and costume items that I want to
add to my gallery. I get my hands into just about every artistic
medium. I can't imagine what my life would be like without art. Deviant or otherwise!!

Thanks, Filly!

My world is definitely an interesting place to live. At least that's what the voices in my head tell me!!

I have been known to sell prints of some of my work at SciFi/Fantasy conventions in the past and hope to
sell more of my art again.

I'm such a newbie here! I've still got to figure out what buttons to push!!

Thanks for the all the compliments on my artwork so far. I've been doing more 3-D and costume work lately than 2-D art. But, for some reason now, I feel a little more inspired!!

I was inspired by another member to join you all here. Most of my 2-D work shown here is a few years old. It's great to have a place to show it off again.

I'll be sure to post newer pieces as they enter the digital world.

What a great place and a warm welcome!!

~Dave
