Lily of the Valley, South Parlour
‘When one is young
one is satisfied with a flower petal or a sparkle.
Now I want more.
I want the rainbow scale of the flower
and the reason and the travel of the sparkle -
and most of all a long quiet time
of intense peace and uninterrupted thought
- none of which one can get.'
Winifred Nicholson to Jim Ede
