Lament (Part VIIII )
(The East Wind blows,
my ears froze,
We have this wretched east wind again! I thought we’d made ourselves clear.
It’s presence is definitely not required, in fact it isn’t welcome here
We do have a little sunshine, weak and watery stuff, fighting through the haze,
with one thing and another, it certainly is not the warmest of days.
We came back from our walk at half eleven, it was enough to make you weep,
the Lesser Celandine along the drive were all still tucked up in bed, fast asleep!
Come on Celandine up, up, up, you certainly are the laziest of flowers.
You should take a leaf from the Dandelions book – they’ve been up for hours.
