I love the simplicity of a good haiku ... yours is simply wonderful!

Thank you for paying me a visit .... From the little I've read it wasn't always happy for Edward and Wallis when it came to their public and political lives ... I am going to pick up both of their autobiographies at the library later this week. I am intrigued with their story.

Great Haiku! I love it. What, indeed, is the point? I think it's a case of much ado about nothing.

Love this Cat! Sharp (pun intended) and witty. I know a lot of Brits who would ask the same question.
