|Cloths of Heaven from Queen Anne's Lace|

I have offered as a prize for January my pattern for Red Rose Shawl. Robbie Burns is a suggested poet for January. (Jan 25 is Robbie Burns' Day). I have also offered for June or July - that's a long way off - "Cloths of Heaven," from W. B. Yeats. I am waiting to see if it has been accepted.
This could be a lot of fun. I think that the recipe part would be great too. Imagine cakes and cookies dedicated to poems or a casserole or two. Sandwiches would work, as well. It could be a Dagwood, if it's after "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner."
In reading the threads, I am coming up with poems that I have never read, so it is a good way to keep in touch. I will also post the reference to the Leonard Cohen group. This is totally unrelated but another group I joined on Ravelry is one that knits and studies Latin. I enjoy Latin Wednesdays on Facebook with Jonathan Levisay a lot, so I thought that I'd add a little more Latin to my week. These guys on Ravelry are serious - some even studied medieval Latin - I had trouble with the most current - just before it died - Latin!
Dinner? I am going to do Shepherd's pie. This one is called "Lazy Shepherd's Pie." Well lazy shepherd's don't end up with enough sheep for a pie - but as a cook, it should make life a little easier. I picked this dish because a few years ago I did a post on a poem entitled "My Lost Shepherdess." You can take it from there.
