Wednesday Morning at Nine O'Clock

She'd allowed thirty minutes to pack

but in the event needed just ten.

Not wishing to remain in the house any longer

she'll wait twenty minutes at the other end.


She's not meeting a man in the motor trade

but she is nevertheless leaving home.

With no regrets she removes her rings

and leaves them by the phone.

I absolutely LOVE that song by the Beatles! Of course, your poem is about a married lady whereas in the song it is about a daughter leaving home

and having a daughter myself the thought of her leaving in the way the lyrics suggest would have the very same broken-hearted response from me like the mum and dad have in the song.

A real tear-jerking track for sure.

Nice poem 'C'

Enigmatic poem that leaves you to create your own story. I like the reference to the Beatles song.
