so ends


we shut the place down   that is   colin's

grandfather's front porch   we 

end the evening with a toast to professor and


mrs eliot   raise high our glasses   drink

heartily to their memory    with

warmth and love   antoinette   nathaniel   marcy   


colin   the five of us   and our new friends   colin's

grandfather   yenny   and

the star that shines brightest   my


own marketa   tears are shed   happy tears   our 

revels are now ended    hugs

and kisses exchanged    each to our


own bed we must go   each to

love   or dream of love   so this fair day ends    










our revels are now ended

—Shakespeare, The Tempest


so this fair day ends

—anon., These Fair Days

All at Coo & Co really enjoyed reading this, otp. It has a most exuberant mood and we love the setting. We wouldn't have picked up the literary references, so thank-coos for mentioning those at the end. Our favourite bit is the 'happy tears'. We look forward to reading you again soon :>o (coo)

As Shakespeare wrote "parting is such sweet sorrow," I see that the similar sentiment is being conveyed through the poem.
