L of Leaving

Good-Bye Australia! Good-Bye loved ones



"They  lived and laughed and loved and left." -James Joyce
Let loose the lovely letter L.

For those who have to take leave among us:

Loosen your hands

Let go and say good-bye.

Let the stars and songs go.

Let the faces and years go.

Loosen your hands and say good-bye.

by Carl Sanburg from "Heartfelt Ways to Say Good-Bye"

  1. Wow. Great words. I hope no one is leaving, though. This is such an awesome group.

    To all thanks for hosting and making this work and have a great week.

  2. I know how you feel, Wil. Flying away from a family visit in Australia.
    But I am in luck because my grandkids are all leaving Australia this week and coming here to Meitar, Israel, for seven months!
    Nice quotations you found.
