Dear the phrase, "I will now entertain a motion to adjourn,"
May I say that, at the conclusion of a meeting at the end of a long week, few words have ever sounded sweeter?
I observe now, many hours hence, that you have a lovely rhythm--like many great phrases, you start out anapestic and end up iambic,
which makes quite a fancy little dance out of an intent to bring proceedings to an end:
O the phrase "I will now entertain a motion to adjourn," you gratify equally in the hearing and the saying!
And upon my uttering the phrase "I will now entertain a motion to adjourn," the motions fell thick upon the ground, and we were agreed: the adjournment moved, seconded and concluded, executed as those present took up the call:
and thus word was deed:
the end, and we parted, and the meeting was no more.
It's very impressive how you do all that,
