Wear scarlet!

Wear scarlet! Tear the green lemons
off the tree! I don’t want
to forget who I am, what has burned in me,
and hang limp and clean, an empty dress.”
Denise Levertov

    Odd you should post that quotation this morning. Another ‘coincidence’? You can decide when I finish the post I began earlier this morning, probably much later today. One thing I have in common with Dernise Levertov: I too in later life have decided that beauty and poetry cannot go together with politics.

      Odd that I changed the post. I wanted to post something else. “Coincidence” :).
      You and Denise are right.
      Earlier in my life I was invited to join politics. I thought then it could be an adventure. I like people and giving speeches. But out of a sudden I changed my mind.
      Anyway out of that adventure I remain with a dream of starting something about political marketing. Maybe later 🙂
      Thank you Roger!
