Please Take a Leaflet

'Please take a leaflet'.
The racks seem to smile:
it's clear they've been empty
for quite a long while.

The displayed invitation
proved such a success
that what was on offer
is anyone's guess.

'Please take a leaflet'.
I would that I could.
I'm sure that their content
was terribly good.

But, still empty-handed,
untutored I'm left
feeling sad, unfulfilled
and, quite frankly, bereft.

Drove back to Lincolnshire across the beautiful fens of Cambridgeshire, meeting my brother and his wife for lunch at The Ship Inn, a pub at the confluence of the Great Ouse and the Little Ouse. There were wonderful skyscapes all the way - see Extra.

Now back at our daughter's residence on midsummer's day. It's still sunny, but a little cooler than the past few days.
