Here's a passage I like by Theodor Geisel...

The Waiting Place…

…for people just waiting.

Waiting for a train to go or a bus to come, or a plane to go…

…or the mail to come, or the rain to go or the phone to ring, or the snow to snow…

…or waiting around for a 
Yes or a No or waiting for their hair to grow.
 Everyone is just waiting.

Waiting for the fish to bite or waiting for wind to fly a kite or waiting around for 
Friday night or waiting, perhaps, for their Uncle Jake or a pot to boil, or a Better Break or a string of pearls…

…or a pair of pants or a wig with curls, or Another Chance.

Everyone is just waiting.


That’s not for you!
 Somehow you’ll escape all that waiting and staying.
 You’ll find the bright places 
where Boom Bands are playing.
