The poem was inspired by my July visit to the Cornell Botanical Gardens in Ithaca, NY. Remembering July, before the Delta variant took over conversation. A few words from another poet: …the future is a faded song, a Royal Rose or a lavender spray Of wistful regret for those who are not yet here to regret, Pressed between yellow leaves of a book that has never been opened. — TS Eliot Ways to Share this:EmailPrintTwitterPinterestFacebookMoreTumblrPocketLinkedInRedditLike this:Like Loading...
