A poem by our resident poet Andrea England on the passing of time.
This year Shrove Tuesday (pancake day)
Is the day before Valentine’s Day
It would be nice to have
Pancakes on Tuesday
Pancakes with strawberries and cream
On Valentine’s Day. Then
A week after Shrove Tuesday
It will be, Ash Wednesday
Which is the beginning of lent
Where some people
Fore- go a particular food-group, say
For forty days. It is, then, Easter.
Easter is the beginning
When nature starts to make a splendid show
Angela’s peoms can be found here.
