Tattered and Torn


This is the man all tattered and torn that kissed the maiden all forlorn, that milked the cow with the crumpled horn, that tossed the dog that worried the cat, that killed the rat that ate the malt that lay in the house that Jack built....
Another one of those autumnal  backgrounds , another face and another quote from a song/poem. Perhaps he is not so "tattered and torn"? Thanks for all the positive comments last week for this style of tag - hope you like this one, too?

  8. I love the style of these tags you've been working on during the last two weeks. By the way, great minds think alike, since my tag was inspired by a tattered and torn man too. Blessings!

  9. There is such sensitive quality in his eyes, like his life has been tattered and torn and now he is healing and hopeful - perhaps a new love? I am enjoying your wonderful tags!
