"APRIL is the cruellest month, breeding

Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing

Memory and desire, stirring

Dull roots with spring rain.

Winter kept us warm, covering

Earth in forgetful snow, feeding

A little life with dried tubers."

Happy equinox all.

Your poem, L, reminds me of the work I have done in the garden to prepare the strawberries and rhubarb for cropping.

Reminds you of your garden Ken ?

The lines are from 'The Waste Land' by T.S. Eliot.

Yes, it is The Waste Land and is one of my favorites. Along with The Listeners...."Is there anybody there said the traveller......" remember that one? Walter de la Mare.

Strawberry Rhubarb Pie!!!!!! Oh God, Ken if I lived next door I might have to resort to garden theft!

Oh yum!

I have to tell you, we had the most delish apple and raspberry crumble on the weekend (thanks mum!)
