Ians Favorite Poem:

The Mower

By Philip Larkin 1922–1985 Philip Larkin   

The mower stalled, twice; kneeling,

I found A hedgehog jammed up against the blades,Killed.

It had been in the long grass.

I had seen it before, and even fed it, once.

Now I had mauled its unobtrusive world Unmendably. 

Burial was no help:

Next morning I got up and it did not.

The first day after a death,

the new absence Is always the same;

we should be careful

Of each other, we should be kind

While there is still time.
