“*Pure Heaven” is all about the flavour, but it’s also about the image and the setting of the cherries in this, the latest addition to the series…are they floating away in the skies or on a marble table top?…it could be either one…no matter, according to the poet, they are the sweetest and the juiciest*
Watercolour on Arches Hot Pressed Paper
When I sound the fairy call,
Gather here in silent meeting,
Chin to knee on the orchard wall,
Cooled with dew and cherries eating.
Take a cherry;
Mine are sounder,
Mine are rounder,
Mine are sweeter.
For the eater
When the dews fall. R.Graves
