Seeds

Thursday 21st April, I chanced to find a poetry meeting running in Hadleigh Library.
One of the short poems seemed specially relevant to the month and season: it was “Seeds” by Walter De La Mare.

Seeds

The seeds I sowed –
For week unseen –
Have pushed up pygmy
Shoots of green;
So frail you’d think
The tiniest stone
Would never let
A glimpse be shown.
But no; a pebble
Near them lies,
At least a cherry-stone
In size,
Which that mere sprout
Has heaved away,
To bask in sunshine,
See the Day.

Walter De La Mare

A nice reminder that we can all sow useful seeds and that some will “See the Day” indeed.

The notice board in the library shows poetry meetings are on the third Thursday of every month 2:30 pm till 3:30 pm.
