A Disagreement With T.S. Elliot (Partial Sonnet.) - Poem by Reece Kaye

I question T.S.Elliot’s remark
on April and the jist of what he said.
Some genius loves to languish in the dark
Lapping with the lilacs of the dead? *

So shakening the wakening of the year
Nostalgia and necrosis lay entwined*
For those who covet fantasies of fear
Hoisting sombre umbrellas o’er their mind

For me, this month’s allure has NEVER flagged.
(Coz “April” was the first lass wot I shagged!)

* Inspired by the quote:

“ April is the cruellest month, breeding lilacs out of the dead land, mixing memory and desire, stirring dull roots with spring rain.” -T.S.Elliot

    April is on my Website, playing the Liebeslied on her violin. I liked her violin; I like April, bringing spring. She calls herself Alix now. (Report) Reply
