A Quest on Overdrive … :)

An eccentric rambler on life's lessons and mercies, found and lost… :)

An Excuse.. :)

17 Comments

Friends, Bloggers and Comrades-in-Arms
Lend me your eyes, yet awhile…

I come not to post another poem 🙂
But to offer excuse, for long lapses of presence :D!

Excuses, I have many, and redemption, none!
For all the while I stay away, watching from
A distance, visiting but for a few snatched moments;

My heart, I find buried here, in the parchment
That holds a lot of what I hold dear… 🙂

Time, they say waits upon all,
Though waits for none…

So let it be with this Rambler,
Quixotic her excuses,
Which [she prays], the generosity
Of your goodselves
Will accept, pardon, and yet receive her, 😀

When finally she does find time,
To wander amidst you all again!

[Sorry, dear friends, it’s been a long haul of school, work, Son-home-on-leave -that is not a haul, it is a joy :D- and family visits. Shall definitely be back in a few days. Till then, do excuse me :)]

And finally, humble apologies to The Bard, for decimating a beautiful piece of his writing… 🙂

  7. Blogs aren’t something where you pen e’day, traditionally..you do that when you feel you have to and when you also get the time..the set of verses, in the form of excuses were commendable…Have no words for that.. waiting for more, is all that i can say!!Cheers!!Fiducia a.k.a Angel

  15. Usha, p(ish)arody? That too, of my friend William. This is unpardonable, though your absense was!To quote my friend William again from ‘Julius Caeser’ again:”Ambition should be made of sterner stuff:Yet Salil says she was ambitious;And Salil is an honourable man.You all did see that on the ‘Overdrive’Where she twice presented him a kingly crown,Which he did twice refuse: was this ambition?”Cheers,Salil
