The slender cake plates had such fiery rims.
They caught the lazy radiance
Of afternoons like torchLight from a tomb. The old
Roses opened to my eyes
Their bold, embellished centres
Where a soft darkness had
Been stippled in. They drew down
My gaze until I felt
Labyrinthed in sweetness like a bee.
My great-aunts painted these.
The hesitant brush strokes on their
Undersides read ‘1893’.
The greenness of their china does not fade
But witnesses an opulence the more forlorn
For being without issue. The pinks
And gilts, the ravelled petals
Blowsy with magenta, importune
The fingers to partake of them.
These were the gravy boats of plenteous
Expectation, the creamers rich with dream;
These were the banquet platters, these
The hard yet fragile saucers, of trousseaux.
These were the festive dishes no one used.
Now they snag the curious
Light of afternoons
In magisterial shadow
Like a pharaoh’s mouth.
In the lovingly abrasive, gently gritted
Impasto of hand-painted surfaces
That resist, like skin, with almost plush aplomb,See All

Kasteel de Haar
Don’t underrate the petite province of Utrecht. Its famous namesake city – with its throngs of students, tree-lined canals and medieval quarter – deserves the limelight. No set piece, it has a plethora of edgy, fun bars and cafes. Those with calmer tastes can visit more than a dozen museums big and small. At the very least, Utrecht is an easy and evocative day trip from Amsterdam. Wandering the back streets you can revel in reminders of the 17th century.
And this is no mere city-state. By bike you can explore impressive castles and tiny towns in under a day. The splendid Kasteel de Haar on Utrecht’s doorstep is one of the country’s most beautiful castles. Amersfoort oozes medieval character but also honours native son Piet Mondrian and his minimalist, angular palette. Then there’s Oudewater in the southwest, synonymous with witchcraft (Monty Python fans will dig it).See All
