Baucis & Philemon

Birr Castle Demesne, Ireland

7 June 2008

 Pallas began the feast, where first was seen
The partly-colored olive, black and green;
Autumnal cornels next in order served,
In lees of wine well pickled and preserved;
A garden salad was the third supply,
Of endive, radishes, and succory,
Then curds and cream, the flower of country fare,
And new-laid eggs, which Baucis' busy care
Turned by a gentle fire, and roasted rare.
