Poem for Friday and 21st Birthday
Dinner of Herbs By Edward Bulwer-Lytton Oh, better no doubt is a dinner of herbs, When season'd with love, which no rancour disturbs And sweeten'd by all that is sweetest in life Than turbot, bisque, ortolans, eaten in strife! But if, out of humour, and hun...

Poem for Thursday and Little Birds
Pied Beauty By Gerard Manley Hopkins Glory be to God for dappled things –    For skies of couple-colour as a brinded cow;       For rose-moles all in stipple upon trout that swim; Fresh-firecoal chestnut-falls; finches’ wings;    Landscape plotted and piece...

Poem for Thursday and Canal in Summer
