Dare I say I'm disappointed?
My plans are all upset – disjointed.
I set out full of springtime joys
With notes and badge and guide-like poise.
Feeling happy as I do
When I have a tour to do
Alas - two hours before the start
The Musée rang – their news was stark:
The school had cancelled on the day
(I wonder what kept them away?)
They incur a cancellation charge
But no walk to the Béguinage.
Though not a village any more
Anderlecht's fun to explore
But Erasmus and his times must wait
For a booking on another date!
