Poem, Spring and Gargoyle

16 Jan

This lovely poem has come my way by various sources over the last few days and I thought you, Dear Readers, might like it too.  Roger Robinson’s collection won the T.S. Eliot prize mentioned in this Guardian cutting as being shortlisted.  What excellent advice there is in this poem. Do carry your paradise with you always – it can be a life-saver.

There are signs of Spring in our garden.

Our first Iris Reticulata

Our son came home over New Year and cleared out lots of his stuff from our attic. He left us this delightful gargoyle which was a present for him from my Mum and Dad many years ago. It’s too heavy to post to Barcelona! Now it is visible from our kitchen window reminding me of some of  those people in my life whom I love.
