Time For A Break


I'm taking a break from Penelope Hayes
I've been living in her pocket for days
I love her to bits but the truth of it is
I owe some time to my husband and kids

Its not that I'm bored of her company
The opposite really, she makes me feel free
I treasure the joy of our two way exchange
But to be so wrapped up in one person looks strange

I'll knock for you soon my sweet of lady of lilt
But neglecting my kin leaves me riddled with guilt
My family crave my full focus on them
So dear Penny,  kiss kiss and TTFN.

While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
