At the end of the bough–its uttermost end,
Missed by the harvesters, ripens the apple,
Nay, not overlooked, but far out of reach,
     So with all best things.

    Beautiful words. Kind of reminds me of a haiku. And I can see how that would appeal to an Armitage aficionado. Please more, if you come across it.

    ohh Sappho, such a way with words she had.. what a shame there is no more of her works for us to enjoy.
    Thanks for the combo, it really works 🙂 The Ascroft that just keeps on giving…. what would we do without it? 🙂
