An Introvert’s Holiday

The holidays are coming soon
I say, make them your own —
While some are with their closest friends,
I’d rather be alone

The party’s going on outside
A good one – I can tell —
I’ll thank them all to let me by
And go to some hotel

Where I can read and write and sleep;
Perhaps, reenergize —
It’s nothing against anyone
It’s better spirit-wise

For me to have some space and time.
This, many folks would hate —
But some time to be by myself?
To me that sounds

  1. Caryll Houselander, too — when company came in the front door of her mother’s house where she resided, she went out the back window!
