My Year in Pictures

By jenny


I am in love with him
To whom a hyacinth is dearer
Than I shall ever be dear.

On nights when the field-mice
Are abroad, he cannot sleep.
He hears their narrow teeth
At the bulbs of his hyacinths.

But the gnawing at my heart...
He does not hear.

~ Edna St. Vincent Millay

Thank you for all the "get well's" yesterday - I'm better, but still not right :(
