Poetry is an artform I could never master, though I do enjoy reading it a lot, so hi delph_ambi, hope you have a good stay here!

I also note that you're a fellow deviant (I spotted the url of the image you put up), so doubly hello :D

Thanks Leander :)

(I hope the fact that we are "fellow deviants" doesn't get misconstrued...)

Croquet, cucumber sandwiches and tea... that's Victorian poshy, Delph. Mrs. Beeton's 19th century editions give a large selection of fingers that can be had with tea and some which ought to. Cucumber sandwiches come in these choices...

Croquet keep children busy, while grownups of course are for badminton...
or siesta.

Good atmospheric poem, full of images from la belle époque blended with postmod metaphores in a unique dream environment suddenly broken by the no less classic flying mallet. A toad's cold belly is good for this kind of bumps as well as for toothache, my grandma would have said.

were my refuge when annoyed - my dearest pleasure when free."

Mrs Beeton advocated eating fingers? Good grief. I have a facsimile of an early edition; will have to go and look up her cannibalism recipes.

Glad you enjoyed the poem, Argie.
