Notice of absence from Neville

Good Mane to one and all .. I just thought between clearing the drive of snow and trying to set off for the airport I better let those that might be interested know of my proposed leave of absence .. Off to the Algarve for a couple of weeks .. Say safe n well and catch ya upon my eventual return .. AGT's Neville :)

Leave the View Behind


Despite being


Her words


Each heard


Though each

Was heard


They each

Sounded absurd



We have but

A moment

Yet time to


There is no

Need to

Linger upon

A love

Now long spent


So from a

Room filled

With mirrors

And the

Sweetest of


A sea view

To die for and

The very

Cheapest of



It is time now

To reflect

She said

Pointing a

Finger at me

Oh’ and on

Your way out

Be sure to

Close the door

And leave

The view behind
