5 (who?)
To seek an end to time itself
That such a moment as this
Could be forever frozen
The leaf fall stilled
In midair freefall
Early frosts bade to spare
The bounty heavy laden
Fixed upon the apple trees
As seasons turn and turn again

Yet there is to be no cessation
Of the trickling stream of sand
Flowing forward endlessly
Taking all that I have ever known
Reshaping and unstitching
Every dream I ever had
Each fragment passing beyond my reach
A realisation that this too shall pass
But nothing could inspire me more

For until the earth stops
Whirling around our flaming sun
In an ever expanding universe
My passion and fervour for truth
Keeps my focus on the day
And when a veil is drawn
Upon the stage of life
With a firm willed smiling end
This film will fade to close.

to keep in theme with your ending line: showstopping.

I'd love to hear you read this stuff aloud. I bet it's as magic to the ear as it already is to the soul. :nod:

I am so very Middle English you might end up covering your ears LOL

I sound like I should work for the BBC...!
Tsk, that's perfect.
Y'know, I grew up on Dr. Who, Monty Python, Alo Alo, Mr. Bean... and the like. I now officially wish I was a dashing Patrick McGoohan trying to escape a place called the Village while not giving up any information regarding my resignation. :paranoid:

Yes. I'm sure I'm trying to say I have a thing for the accent.
And now I've said too much.

Ah, the accent! I am really too English for words, best you just give up trying to escape now really ;-)

You are a number, after all... :evillaugh:
I will not be pushed, filed, stamped, indexed, briefed, debriefed, or numbered.

Oh, come now, you know I own you. Why, i've got your DNA sequence right here on my pc...


It's funny, really... to come across a comment like this---especially after having forgotten what I'd said previously. :lmao:

...and of course this ruins any chance of me responding back further in narrative.
Grawr! This round goes to you.
