And drank coffee, and talked for an hour. / Bin gar kine Russin, stamm' aus Litauen, echt deutsch.

April is the cruellest month, breeding
Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing
Memory and desire, stirring
Dull roots with spring rain.

....but it IS national poetry month... 
so i'll try to post some of my young writers' 
latest throughout the month ...because, 
well, in their words, they rock!

There is shadow under this red rock, 
(Come in under the shadow of this red rock),
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
--The Waste Land  1922  T.S. Eliot 

for more of eliot's the waste land
