Tangentially flying off, am reminded of the alternative meanings given to orders of chivalry / decorations handed out by Britain to their diplomats = the Order of St Michael and St George. These progress according to seniority from

Commander - CMG or ' Call Me Godly

Knight Commander - KCMG or 'Kindly Call Me Godly'

Grand Cross Commander -  GCMG* or 'God Calls Me Godly'

* usually only the Head of the British Diplomatic Service gets to be a GCMG

My usual question:  can anyone direct us to a poem or stanza by Hughes worth remembering or rereading?  We seem to have a lot of biographical data but not that much poetry.

Very sure I've mentioned this before, but will again: Ted Hughes' mother was a direct descendant of Nicholas Ferrar, he of Little Gidding and presumably after whom TH's late son  who also took his own life (R very much IP) was named

Grown-up Frieda H of course recently fell out bigtime with Sir Jonathan Bate over that biography.

A quote from Dylan Thomas which resonates rather acutely vis-a-vis Eliot
