Can You Give Me An Example Of A Quince Poem?



Can You Give Me An Example Of A Quince Poem?
Here you go:

Peter Quince at the Clavier


Just as my fingers on these keys

Make music, so the self-same sounds

On my spirit make a music, too.

Music is feeling, then, not sound;

And thus it is that what I feel,

Here in this room, desiring you,

Thinking of your blue-shadowed silk,

Is music. It is like the strain

Waked in the elders by Susanna;

Of a green evening, clear and warm,

She bathed in her still garden, while

The red-eyed elders, watching, felt

The basses of their beings throb

In witching chords, and their thin blood

Pulse pizzicati of Hosanna.


In the green water, clear and warm,

Susanna lay.

She searched

The touch of springs,

And found

Concealed imaginings.

She sighed,

For so much melody.

Upon the bank, she stood

In the cool

Of spent emotions.

She felt, among the leaves,

The dew

Of old devotions.

She walked upon the grass,

Still quavering.

The winds were like her maids,

On timid feet,

Fetching her woven scarves,

Yet wavering.

A breath upon her hand

Muted the night.

She turned --

A cymbal crashed,

Amid roaring horns.


Soon, with a noise like tambourines,

Came her attendant Byzantines.

They wondered why Susanna cried

Against the elders by her side;

And as they whispered, the refrain

Was like a willow swept by rain.

Anon, their lamps' uplifted flame

Revealed Susanna and her shame.

And then, the simpering Byzantines

Fled, with a noise like tambourines.


Beauty is momentary in the mind --

The fitful tracing of a portal;

But in the flesh it is immortal.

The body dies; the body's beauty lives.

So evenings die, in their green going,

A wave, interminably flowing.

So gardens die, their meek breath scenting

The cowl of winter, done repenting.

So maidens die, to the auroral

Celebration of a maiden's choral.

Susanna's music touched the bawdy strings

Of those white elders; but, escaping,

Left only Death's ironic scraping.

Now, in its immortality, it plays

On the clear viol of her memory,

And makes a constant sacrament of praise.

Hope this helps!

Reply:Probably a cute teal dress nothiing too fancy. Probably a cute loose one that hugs at the thigh area those are in style now. oh and dont wear the color of the 15

Hope u find what ur looking for!! :]
Reply:What color you wear doesn't matter because you are not part of the service, you are an invited guest .. Wear the color you feel best wearing.

If you feel you must wear a color that compliments the party, find out what color they are using for accent and blend to that.

Cute dresses are available at Ross, Marshall's, TJ Maxx,

Target, WalMart...

Have Fun !
Reply:Just get a cute little cocktail dress, you can find some at places like jc pennys and macys and stuff like that,

id reccommend wearing a bright color but pick something that looked good with your hair/skin tone.

What is a quince?

I know it's some sort of fruit, but what is it?

What is a quince?
It is a small deciduous tree, growing 5-8 m tall and 4-6 m wide, related to apples and pears, and like them has a pome fruit, which is bright golden yellow when mature, pear-shaped, 7-12 cm long and 6-9 cm broad.
Reply:It's a hard fruit which looks a little like a speckled apple. Used for making into jelly, jam, and liqueur. Too bitter to eat raw.
Reply:it looks like and apple, and tastes like an apple kinda..but is a bit less can cook it too...its common in turkey....quite nice really
Reply:from what i no it is a throat infiction a bit like tonsilitise but worse i think the tonsills burst i have never heard of it as a fruit tho
Reply:A quince is a fruit resembling a pear that was first cultivated in the Middle East. In fact, the proverbial apple offered to Adam by Eve may actually be more accurately translated as a quince. Quinces cannot be eaten like pears or apples, with the exception of the less cultivated pineapple variety, but need to be baked or frozen to eliminate their acidity.

Once ripened, the yellowish fruit still has a hard exterior, much like a winter squash. If one is not using quinces immediately, cooking guides recommend storing them in the refrigerator for up to two weeks. The seeds are poisonous and should be discarded. The core of the quince is very hard, but using a sharp paring knife will divest the quince of both the unusable core and the dangerous seeds.
Reply:It's an apple like fruit. When you see one on a tree, it looks like an apple without a stem. It grows right up next to the branch. They're too tart to eat raw, but they're really good when added to something like a batch of apple sauce.
Reply:I have quince growing in my garden. Much too hard to eat raw - but I add some peeled and sliced to apple when I make pies. Gives an unusual piquant taste- lovely served with lashing of cream!
Reply:a quince is a hard, yellow skinned fruit, looks and tastes like a cross between an apple and a pear.

The flesh is quite dry and has an astringent, tart flavor.

It's better cooked then raw and it's high pectin content is ideal for jams and jellies.
Reply:Its like a small apple slightly dry with a similar taste to a dry pear. They are often used in dishes like caserole and fruity stews but in the main they are not worth bothering with
Reply:quince (cydonia oblonga) is a fruit of small tree related to

apples and pears.
Reply:Its a daft fruit, that is quite bitter, my gran used to have a quine bush in her garden. you can make the fruit into jam.
Reply:i think it is small and purple (perhaps) you make jam with it. I think it is quite old fashioned, you don't see it around much now
Reply:i had one on my throat but that was an abscess not a fruit
Reply:It's a hard apple like fruit, only edible when cooked, it's usually used to make jelly or preserves. It comes from an Asian shrub tree of the same name.
Reply:It is like a small apple but a lot, lot sharper, i can tell u!! we have one outside in our garden.



Cydonia oblonga flowers

Scientific classification

Kingdom: Plantae

Division: Magnoliophyta

Class: Magnoliopsida

Order: Rosales

Family: Rosaceae

Subfamily: Maloideae

Genus: Cydonia

Species: C. oblonga

Binomial name

Cydonia oblonga


The Quince Cydonia oblonga is the sole member of the genus Cydonia and native to warm-temperate southwest Asia in the Caucasus region. It is a small deciduous tree, growing 5-8 m tall and 4-6 m wide, related to apples and pears, and like them has a pome fruit, which is bright golden yellow when mature, pear-shaped, 7-12 cm long and 6-9 cm broad.

The immature fruit is green, with dense grey-white pubescence which mostly (but not all) rubs off before maturity in late autumn when the fruit changes colour to yellow with hard flesh that is strongly perfumed. The leaves are alternately arranged, simple, 6-11 cm long, with an entire margin and densely pubescent with fine white hairs. The flowers, produced in spring after the leaves, are white or pink, 5 cm across, with five petals.

Quince is used as a food plant by the larvae of some Lepidoptera species including Brown-tail, Bucculatrix bechsteinella, Bucculatrix pomifoliella, Coleophora cerasivorella, Coleophora malivorella, Green Pug and Winter Moth.

Four other species previously included in the genus Cydonia are now treated in separate genera. These are the Chinese Quince Pseudocydonia sinensis, a native of China, and the three flowering quinces of eastern Asia in the genus Chaenomeles. Another unrelated fruit, the Bael, is sometimes called the "Bengal Quince".
Reply:it's a fruit that is related to apples and pears, and is slightly pear-shaped. in some countries it is cooked and eaten with cheese, or made into jam.
Reply:either of two trees that produce small round yellowish fruit; fruit produced by these trees
Reply:A fragrant fruit, quince is similar in appearance to the pear and the apple.

Anyone know where I can buy Quinces from?

I can't find them anywhere and I suspect they mainly come from private growers but if anyone knows a farm which sells them in East Sussex I would be most grateful.

Whats the best way to cook quinces?

And the easiest!

Whats the best way to cook quinces?

3 c. sugar

1 c. quinces (ground raw)

2 c. water

Mix together, cook until thick. Quince honey was always a treat. Sometimes served when one had a cold.
Reply:Quince Jelly


7 1/2 cups sugar

3 fluid ounces liquid pectin

4 1/2 cups water

3 pounds quinces, cored and chopped, peels on

1/4 cup lemon juice



Sterilize 8 (1/2 pint) jars in boiling water for at least 5 minutes, and have new lids ready.

Place the quinces in a large pot, and pour in water. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low, and simmer, covered, for 15 minutes. Strain off 4 cups of the juice. Mix juice with sugar and lemon juice in a heavy pot, and bring to a boil over high heat, stirring constantly. Stir in pectin, and return to a boil. Boil for 1 full minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and skim off foam. Ladle into hot sterile jars, and process for 10 minutes in a hot water bath to seal. Refrigerate jelly after opening.

Store sealed jars in a cool dark place. Refrigerate jelly after opening.
