While the Drood's away at Edwin Drood's Column
Mme Harker informs us that Edwin was last seen disappearing into the February mist with Jean-Michel. She says she suspects they are cooking something up, and that they did not say when they would return. While we're waiting here's a poem about waiting by Hugh Featherstone.
 
Waiting

He asked her if she would wait
and she said

"Forever"

... which was dumb, really
forever being rather long
especially the middle part
but she waited and she waited
and she went on waiting and waiting
until it occurred to her

"Maybe nothing's going to change
I'll just wait a little longer
and then think what to do next"

So she waited and waited a little longer
and a little longer still and then another one
but the nothing that changed went on changing
so she thought

"What to do next is ... well, I'll
just wait and see for a bit and then go"

And so she waited and saw for a bit and then ... went
and waited a bit more and saw a bit less
until she knew for certain that all this
nothing changing and nothing happening
could change and happen forever
so she finally said

"That's it, I'm not waiting any longer"

So she didn't wait any longer
which is why she's still there

Today

Not waiting
