Following 18 days grazing the pastoral beauty of rural England it’s time, once more, for me to step into the day-to-day and establish a routine, albeit a slightly adjusted one as I make more room for tea time. 😉
As for a certain horse ~ apparently my absence did not go unnoticed.
While I pull my vacation-stoked thoughts together in preparation for future writing projects, please enjoy the thoughtful ruminations (in sonnet form, of course) of my darling Shakespeare.
Oh, the drama …
Woe Is Me
A fog of loneliness my spirit shroud
As separate from the one I love am forced.
My head and heart bemoan this passing cloud
No matter some might think me just a horse.
Thus plant my lips do I in grassy field
To fill the hours head down in happy place.
For to my sadness I resist to yield
And paste diminished smile on this long face.
As minutes pass to hours pass to days
In moments do I dwell my heart to heal.
Yet to the paddock gate I’m wont to gaze
In search of she to whom my heart reveal.
Perchance, as all things do, this fog will pass,
Returning to my view my lovely lass.
Fortunately there is a happy ending …
Woe Be Gone!
The spearmint chill of autumn through my bones
Creeps as the frigid winds my flesh embrace.
Full care take I my heart turns not to stone
So mem’ries of my Love remain in place.
And to this end am glad to do my part
As from the gate a voice drifts o’er the breeze
To heat the very cellar of my heart
So flesh and bones thus warm a few degrees.
My Love, she hath returned. Oh bliss! Oh joy!
Cold wind her sweet voice carries home to me.
No more disconsolate or lonely boy
Love swarmeth in my heart as buzzing bee.
As bones and flesh alive with her now heal
The autumn’s chills no longer do I feel.
We’ll return to regular programming shortly .. 😉
Nurture what you love …
