Stopping By The Office On A Snowy Evening

Stopping By The Office On A Snowy Evening

by Tony Noland

Whose office this is I think you know
My workday ended long ago
She might not mind me stopping here
To do a couple of things and go

My little wife must think it queer
To stop without objective clear
After the gym and running late
The busiest weekend of the year

She gives my silenced phone a shake
To ask if there is some mistake
The only other sound's the beep
Of one more e.mail I need to take

The office's paperwork is piled so deep
But I have a homelife I must keep
And hours to go before I sleep
And hours to go before I sleep


For Cecilia Dominic (@RandomOenophile). With deepest apologies to Robert Frost.

  1. I'm sure the good Mr. Frost would understand. The "homelife" mentioned is also a form of promise, and must be kept.

    Excellent work on the rhyming scheme.
