Saturday’s Piece

“I have been a foolish, greedy and ignorant man;

Yet I have had my time beneath the sun and the stars;

I have known the returning strength and sweetness of the seasons.

Blossom on the branch and the ripening of the fruit,

The deep rest of the grass, the salt of the sea,

The frozen ecstasy of mountains…..”

(First half of quotation… Johnson in ‘Johnson over Jordan‘ by J.B. Priestly, 1894 – 1984)

John Lentell

20th August, 1969
