    Portrait poetry

    Those Winter Sundays

    Sundays too my father got up early
    and put his clothes on in the blueblack cold,
    then with cracked hands that ached
    from labor in the weekday weather made
    banked fires blaze. No one ever thanked him.

    He was the day
    She was the night.
    He lived for misty mornings
    She lived for crazy midnights
    He was the sun
    She was the moon
    They were opposite souls.
    Yet both waited impatiently
    For the rare days when
    They might coexist peacefully

    April is the cruellest month, breeding
    Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing
    Memory and desire, stirring
    Dull roots with spring rain.

    – T. S Eliot
