Share a poem you ❤️ ?
by John Berger

In the morning
folded with its wild flowers 
washed and ironed
it takes up little space in the drawer. 

Shaking it open 
she ties it round her head. 

In the evening she pulls it off 
and lets it fall 
still knotted to the floor. 

On a cotton scarf 
among printed flowers 
a working day 
has written its dream. 
Would you rather have your dream job or find your true love?
True Love, of course.

    It’s unlikely you will remember me, but you may remember our daughter, Alicia Dunn, who worked for you at Midnight Farm the summer of 2002. I still have the copy of POTLUCK that you inscribed to us, thanking us for “loaning us your wonderful daughter.” I wanted to let you know that I still bake from it and will be baking the Lambert Cove Tea Cake for a Christmas Eve luncheon, as well as well as Casey’s Alaska Cookies and Caramel Pecan Squares for Christmas cookie bags.

    Best of luck in your many new ventures.
