Juliet at the Window.

.













Oh, Romeo dear, don't be mean,
So harsh of you to vent your spleen!
For I cannot join thee,
to make love tonight, see,
There's three hundred rooms I must clean!

A Magpie always keeps its nest in order. Take a look.
PS: As second time visitors may have noted, a poem is never finished; it is merely abandoned.

  3. Romeo could help with the room cleaning, instead of *venting a spleen*! Juliet would appreciate it. A fun write, Stafford. Thank you for the giggles. =D

  6. Yes cut the pretty speech-making Romeo, and give girl a hand! I’ll never view that scene in quite the same ‘light’ again. Very funny.

  7. He needs to get up there quick smart and help out! Otherwise we might switch to another Shakespeare play 'Is this a dagger which I see before me'!

    1. Yes, and when lady Mc B wailed 'Out damn spot', I thought she was referring to her conscience and how hard it was to wash away the stigma of Duncan's blood, but maybe she was annoyed at how much cleaning was needed to keep the castle spotless!

  8. At the end of Bill Shakespeare's version, Romeo and Juliet both die. But, the impact of the young lover's deaths stops a feud between their families.

    Indeed venting a spleen

    1. Dunno about that. Wasn't it Juliet who called into the night; "Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo!?"
      As others have suggested, she wanted him to come and help with the cleaning!

    2. Could third time be the charm, Romeo?

  13. How sad, time for play would have to wait. Working can be very exhausting, waiting I mean!

  17. When you have been together for so long and loving it, cleaning the house together might end up in fun.

    All those different rooms!
