Sonnet No. 29


"...For thy sweet love remembered such wealth brings, That then I scorn to change my state with kings..."

Since most of my visits to you are in the middle of the night, you might consider leaving a rope hanging from your window. I assure you, I could climb it.

Seriously, you are the princess, to be sought. I do not think this sonnet is quite right for you. With a few changes in the words, you should be the recipient of it. Don't you think?

I will try to listen to Gilbert tomorrow. Remember, I do not use high speed and, under the circumstances, am not certain I wish to get it for a couple of months. If Gilbert were Francoise, I might be more anxious. Sleep well, Natalie of the Rus.

Thank you, Fram,
Maybe No. 29 was not right for me but is definitely right for someone else to …listen. Or no?

I would never question your climbing abilities; never doubt your physical fitness, yet it is rather high – 90 feet above the ground, think again!!
For the “princess” I thank you, honored, honored!!! But I would be content with (well) ageing queen-mother!!!!

Fram is so funny and made me laugh. Perhaps, you should leave two ropes, 90feet doesnt put me off, come on Natalie?

Natalie said...

Tried to picture both of you hanging there….
Laughing hard and loud, Dapo!!!! Very, very funny!

I did listen to your recitation of 29 last night, Natalie. That's why I said a few words could be changed, then make you the recipient rather than the presenter. I have not listened to Gilbert yet, but shortly.

Well, if this is going to be a competitive event, we’ll leave the rope climbing to Dapo. Meanwhile, I'll hire a chopper and rappel in with a bottle of wine so we can offer him a drink if he makes it.

We will be there tonight.

ps: its me (fomerly the green snake) I have written a post explaining the reason for the name changes. Anyway, see you in a few minutes by that window and I hope this isn't a trick and you will not call the cops when you see both Fram and I loooking up :)

Natalie said...

I know who you are, Dapo!!! Whether you call yourself Green Snake, or the Y River, or the Red Eyes…
“Rising from the ashes” it is more about Scorpios – are you one of us?? (Hahaha!!!)
Anyway, I started to read your explanation for the name change while at work, going to finish it now.
I so needed good laugh, and you gave it to me! Thank you (Remember, the 23rd floor, facing North!)

Thank you for recording one of my favorite sonnets! You are so beautiful and have such a sweet voice. Again, thank you kindly.

Natalie said...

Thank you, Yoli,
It is a high praise from former theatre major…

Rising from my Ashes said...

You let me down...I was there waiting...no ropes nothing. My neck hurts now after spending over an hour starring up at the window. Did Fram show up before me...ha ha now I know so Fram was up there eh?

Natalie said...

Sorry for letting you down, Dapo…
No ropes, no weapon in my house!
And Fram – he’s only good at talking!!
