The end of the Affair


I know some of you were disappointed not to hear what happened to that tragic couple Robin and Jenny.

LOM particularly felt the omission deeply and set about researching the story.. As a result she has printed the whole poem in its entirety. If you click on the link you will be transported to her vale of sadness. Be warned - tissues will be required.

Thanks for the warning. I'll stay here. Had too many tears - am quite enjoying not having them at the mo :)

I didn't think I knew the story but as I was reading it all came back to me, must have learnt it in school. I do like a bit of narrative poetry.

Kim: the robin gets it!

Eryl; yes of course - who killed Cock Robin?
But the sparrow didn't mean to = poor thing.

Thanks for the link. I had completely forgotten that poem. It must be 60 years since I read it.

Didn't make me cry but did remind me that I knew it from before. I like a good memory jog. ~Mary
