Aaah. The Dame never ceases to please. Somehow the Times was never the same once the Lorna column stopped. If Daphne will allow me a plug, Lorna enthusiasts will find a series of “crits” of her literary works on J’accuse. All you have to do to savour them is to go to https://jaccuse.wordpress.com and type “TGIL” in the search box on the right column. Enjoy.
My hard work earned me the description “a luxembourger that smells of gozo cheese” by the dame herself. You can get a mouse pad commemorating the occasion here: http://www.cafepress.com/akkuza.31045329 (of course not one specimen was sold).

By the way, how consistent you are. I really admire you for ridiculing L.V.
Now I feel the Easter spirit. Heroid and Pilatus in galore status washing their backs.

Her hands holding herself
are like hands in an old barn
holding a bag open.
I was outside looking in
at its lapped and supple mouth
I looked up under the thatch
at the dark mouth and eye
of a bird’s nest or a rat’s hole,
smelling the rose on the wall,
mildew, an earthen floor,
and warm depth of the eaves.
And then one night in the yard
I stood still under heavy rain
wearing the bag like a caul…
