Rupert Brooke (1887-1915): The Gardens of Heaven

I once dreamt that I was in the Gardens of Heaven walking between great odorous beds of helichryse and asphodel. Turning a corner I met the present headmaster of Rugby School in his shirt-sleeves. He was digging up all the beautiful flowers. I hit him severely on the nose, and asked him what he was doing. He said he was uprooting the useless flowers and planting vegetables for food instead. I told him that in Heaven one subsisted entirely on beautiful thoughts. He replied that he would starve; and continued to dig, muttering. He began to swell as I gazed, and, still grunting, "Cabbages and onions," grew so big that he blotted out the sky.
