Spring Growth, Dinnertime2 and Ferlinghetti

17 Apr

The garden is full of Spring growth and is a delight to look at closely.

Dinner tonight was from a supplement that came with the Guardian on Saturday, Easy Ottolenghi, Roast Leeks with Soy Beans and Buffalo Mozzarella. It really was easy and was absolutely delicious. There are several other recipes in the supplement that I plan on trying.  For other photos in the Dinnertime Photo Challenge this week, please click here.

Today’s poem has really been published in my previous post but now I’m in the groove for the month I just have to let you have this gem by Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Don’t Let That Horse.  I love it and hope you do too.

Don’t let that horse
eat that violin

cried Chagall’s mother

But he
kept right on

And became famous

And kept on painting
The Horse With Violin In Mouth

And when he finally finished it
he jumped up upon the horse
and rode away
waving the violin

And then with a low bow gave it
to the first naked nude he ran across

And there were no strings
