Garden Bloggers Muse Day - January 2010
"Winter is icummen in,
Lhude sing Goddamm.
Raineth drop and staineth slop,
And how the wind doth ramm!
Skiddeth bus and sloppeth us,
An ague hath my ham.
Freezeth river, turneth liver,
Damn you, sing: Goddamm.
Goddamm, Goddamm, 'tis why I am, Goddamm,
So 'gainst the winter's balm.
Sing goddamm, damm, sing Goddamm.
Sing goddamm, sing goddamm, DAMM".
~ Ezra Pound , 1885 -1972
January has started on a bitterly cold note here. I am glad I am not a bird.
More musing on the month of January can be perused over at Sweet Home and Garden Chicago.
