Laugh through the seasons with Liz's poems, filled with acute observations and bitter-sweet wit. Here is everything from the joy of a first crocus and the frustration of a floppy hyacinth to drought and soaring dragonflies, or wrestling with weevils and being kept awake by the nightmare sound of mating foxes.
With other beauties numberless: But at the Center, Darkness is, and Hell; There wicked Spirits, and there the Damned dwell. With me alas, quite contrary it fares; Darkness and Death lies in my weeping eyes, Despair and Paleness in my face appears, And Grief, and Fear, Love’s greatest Enemies; But, like the Persian-Tyrant, Love within. Keeps his proud Court, and ne’re is seen. Oh take my Heart, and by that means you’ll prove.

But Letty only saw his face twisted with arrogance and his roundness squeezed into a beautiful silk coat that she knew had been torn off the back of a young man just that morning.
