Today, I'm doing something different. Yesterday I got the most beautiful poetry book from my hubby as part of his Valentine Gifts to me. It arrived in a gift box from Fortnum and Mason and I was utterly delighted when I opened. Let's just say my hubby is a very happy man this morning.

A Collection of Contemporary Love Poetry, Edited by Greta Bellamacina and Illustrated by Isabella Cotier. So I'm going to share one of the poems from the book. I hope you enjoy it.



Now in Late Summer She Comes to Me
By Anno Birkin

Now in late summer she comes to me,
and I can't tell horror from heaven.
Again! again! Once more there is promise
of light to my shadows.
The meadows are red.

Her tongue is infected with sex.
