MORE CUMBRIAN COLOUR – that brings to mind the greeting sent to me by an English friend who’s presently visiting “New England in the Fall”, and which arrived the day after I recently posted Fresh Air.
I took one Draught of Life -
I’ll tell you what I paid -
Precisely an existence -
The market price, they said.
They weighed me, Dust by Dust -
They balanced Film with Film,
Then handed me my Being’s worth -
A single Dram of Heaven!
