Rose Mansion

The rose is a mansion! All its rooms are done

in silk and elegant! If there were chairs,

About these ads

they would be Hepplewhite and Sheraton.

There would be grand, polished, curving stairs!

You know that vases there are china-thin,

delicately painted with petals; and you think

that concerts would include a violin

and the most-favored color would be pink!

A visitor would stay a night or so

About these ads

and dress for dinner, and in exquisite clothes;

poets would be invited

and dedicate their poems to a rose!
