The Bench

This shot, taken on a recent holiday , has brought out the Victorian Sentimentalist in me! 


THE BENCH

I must leave, and leaving, weep,
All I ask is for you to keep
Watch at some time in the day
Where you were when I went away.
Let me picture that shaded spot;
 A corner of our garden plot,
Where you and I just sat and talked
Gazing at paths where we once walked.
Honour bids me say farewell,
For how long no-one can tell.
Know that I will dream and yearn,
Till I join you there on my return.

Somehow felt that it was this way...
The Victorian girls walked away..

Lovely shady spot - nothing like a bit of Victorian sensitivity on the weekend. xx

Sentimentality is a nice trait. We often see the best of times in a spot like this. We want to get out of the hot sun, but don't want to lose all warmth,to the spotty shade - just to cool down a bit and continue the conversation. A beautiful, contemplative place!

Well, I found it, via SSS! It does look as if it doesn't belong there and perhaps your rime gives it its raison d'etre! Feel better soon!
