On this breezy October morn, I walk
in the swift shadows of cloud-cursing rooks,
watching the world wake on the horizon.
All houses wherein men have lived and died
Are haunted houses. Through the open doors
The harmless phantoms on their errands glide,
With feet that make no sound upon the floors.
We meet them at the doorway, on the stair,
Along the passages they come and go,
Impalpable impressions on the air,
A sense of something moving to and fro.
We've all done it. The words slip out and you realise you have said the wrong thing. I have just sent an email back to the person who I was warning someone else about! (How embarrassing is that!)
Have you had any terrible moments like this? What do you do when you realise you've put your foot in your mouth? Do you die of shame or try and find a way to wriggle out of the situation (at least in my case, I don't know the person and it's only an email!!)
