Private Post : To Her

Since we agreed to let the road between us Fall to disuse, And bricked our gates up, planted trees to screen us, And turned all time's eroding agents loose, Silence, and space, and strangers - our neglect Has not had much effect. Leaves drift unswept, perhaps; grass creeps unmown; No other change. So clear it stands, so little overgrown, Walking that way tonight would not seem strange, And still would be followed. A little longer, And time would be the stronger, Drafting a world where no such road will run From you to me; To watch that world come up like a cold sun, Rewarding others, is my liberty. Not to prevent it is my will's fulfillment. Willing it, my ailment.

Goodbye ! Sam

I don't usually care for Philip Larkin, but that one is touching.

Is this then the swan song?

If we don't hear from you again, we won't forget.

I took it as a message to a girl, but after kat's comment, color me confused; I hope that's not indicating the end of your blogging.

well...I am worried that it is simply after a few comments from him that he might need to back down on some of his political postings and then that last "I am not against Islam but think it should change" says he's been getting comments or emails that might be a little upsetting to say the least (if not threatening)

Oops...too fast, I hope that we hear from our friend a little in order to devine the cause.
