Friends are all so good in times of need. I went out for a drive with the farmer this morning and returned to find a bowl of friend W's Beetroot Salad (delicious stuff) - or at least didn't find it until she sent me an e mail to ask if I had found it.
A couple of days ago my friends P and D (who were supposed to be coming for the week end next weekend until I put them off) sent me a lovely card showing a lake (they live in The Lakes). When I opened it, it is a series of fifteen questions. Each one is just a line from a Poem. They ask me for the Title and Poet and then for the preceding line and the following line to the line quoted. I have so enjoyed doing it.
In almost all cases I have known the Poet and the title without looking them up, but the preceding and following lines have sometimes stumped me, and I have been trying hard not to look them up.
One however has completely stumped me - does anyone know - 'you cannot live in the present' - I am sure some of you will know.
And what a lovely idea to send someone who is laid up. Remember it for future use.
