A Love Poem, Flowers and Another Love Poem

14 Feb

It’s Valentine’s Day so here, for you all, are two poems and some flowers to share.

This one by e e cummings has been one of our favourites since we met 48 years ago.

Here are our daffodils, opening beautifully this morning.

This poem by Wendy Cope has been published for the first time in The Guardian today. I think it is very beautiful. It reminds me of something my Mum used to say, “Every goodbye, even if you are only going shopping should be a proper good one!”

    Thank you for those poems. Beautiful and so poignant. And then the daffodils – what can I say about them? For me they’re always pregnant with memories.
