  1. "Whoa" said Mama Schmidt, as Toddler Schmidt beat Baby Schmidt to the bottom of the stairs. (Baby Schmidt let out such a howl!).

    "What's all the tantivy about?"

    "Tanty what, Mummy?" said Toddler Schmidt, looking all innocent, like butter wouldn't melt..

    "It's a hunting cry" said Mama Schmidt sternly, waving her wooden baking spoon in Toddler Schmidt's face. "It's used by huntsmen when they're at full gallop after a fox. And if you don't behave, Toddler, I'll be hunting YOU."

    "Oo-er" said Toddler Schmidt, suddenly on her best behaviour, picking up Baby Schmidt, dusting him down and hissing in his ear "..and YOU can stop howling. If Mama chases me, I will gallop away, and you will be my horse."

  2. They call the wind Tantivy
    Upon it Despoina rides
    Fleeing her uncle, Zeus
    Finally she becomes a lioness
    Send Zeus fleeing ashivy

  3. Once upon an eternity there was a little donkey that dreamed of flying like the rain on a stormy day. He purchased a pair of wings at a party store, jumped from a cliff...and landed tantivy in donkey heaven. The moral of the story? If you're going to pretend you're like the rain, it's better to be either a cat or a dog. :)

  4. my first encounter with tantivy
    was on a holiday
    when i was three

    i was put on a saddle
    i thought i couldn't hurdle
    but off we went on a hurtle

    my pony and me
    ear to ear in glee
    we left the caretaker puny
