1. (Christianity) . the period of forty weekdays lasting from Ash Wednesday to Holy Saturday, observed as a time of penance and fasting commemorating Jesus' fasting in the wilderness
3. (plural) (at Cambridge University) Lent term boat races

Lashes aren’t compulsory
(And awkward in the kitchen)
But greens are offered in penitence
Imposed by and for Lent
By someone who obviously never knew
About their lush appeal
