The Totally Optional Prompt is 'Time to Leave'

On Aug 30,1965, Casey Stengel announced his retirement after 55 years in baseball. Today I am announcing that after one year at TOP it's time for me to leave and make room for someone else. The challenge this week is to write a poem about 'Time to Leave'.

With any kind of luck I'm out camping and birding where it's warm and dry. Before leaving I posted Neglected Grave , which is definitely about leaving.

Remarks on the prompt, your latest poetry discovery, or this 'poetry exchange' blog can be made as comments to this posting. Late Wednesday night, between one rerun and another, Tiel Aisha Ansari will post a Request For Poems, where you can leave a link to your poem inspired by the prompt, or any other poem you want to share.
