Vita Sackville-West

« All quotes from this author
 

She walks among the loveliness she made,
Between the apple-blossom and the wateró
She walks among the patterned pied brocade,
Each flower her son, and every tree her daughter.
--
"The Island", in Bulletin of the Garden Club of America (1929), p. 1, also in Collected Poems (1934), p. 54

The blossom is out in full now, itís plum tree, it looks like apple blossom but itís white. Itís the whitest, frothiest blossomest blossom that ever could be, and I can see it. Things are both more trivial than they ever were and more important than they ever were, and the difference between the trivial and the important doesnít seem to matter. But the now-ness of everything is absolutely wondrous.

 
Dennis Potter
