LAMMAS DAY *

First fruits
of the grain,
on 'loaf mass' day-
the autumn harvest has
begun

* a medieval holiday sundown 31/7 to sundown 1/8

    The Jewish celebrate a First Fruits. I am not Jewish so I don't know the dates. This is a very descriptive piece,Brian. My poem"Poetry In State Of Development" is an unfinished work about a lighthouse that still stands today but was bombarded during the Civil War. I don't know if I can get the flow that I need to finish it. Thanks for the comments. Sara
