Current Song: All I Need by Noah Tauscher

"You gave me hyacinths first a year ago;
They called me the hyacinth girl."
- Yet when we came back, late, from the Hyacinth garden,
Your arms full, and your hair wet, I could not
Speak, and my eyes failed, I was neither
Living nor dead, and I knew nothing,
Looking into the heart of light, the silence.

- selected lines from The Waste Land by T.S. Eliot

Such lovely lines. I'm ready for hyacinths to bloom.

My hyacinths are poking green knobs up in the garden! Soon...soon!
