Time Is the Longest Distance…

“Parting is such sweet sorrow…”
Will wrote, and he was right.
Alas, I, too,
must take my leave but unlike R and J,
I shall return refreshed and ready to catch up .
No sluggard, I, but duty calls me to away,
no far off destination, no exotic isle,
just mundane chores demanding of attention.
O, woe is me! Prithee, fellow bloggers,
I shall return…less than a fortnight
more than a week, I think.
Too soon to tell the span so causing
of consternation, but return I shall.
On a more modern note,
as MacArthur said,
I will be back.

See you in a week or so.

    “… that I shall say goodnight till it be morrow.”

    The Shakespearean tone throughout this poem is quite effective. May good fortune attend the endeavors which draw thee thence until thou canst return anon.
