HAPPY MAY



I. THE BURIAL OF THE DEAD

APRIL is the cruellest month, breeding
Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing
Memory and desire, stirring
Dull roots with spring rain.
Winter kept us warm, covering         
Earth in forgetful snow, feeding
A little life with dried tubers.
Summer surprised us...

--From T.S. Eliot's "The Waste Land" (1922)
