    I absolutely love love love Ciardi's poetry, but I was disappointed to find that my favourite of is poems, 'My Father's Watch', is not available on poemhunter. Any chance this could be rectified?

Once I had 1000 roses.
Literally 1000 roses.
I was working for a florist
back in the shambling ‘Thirties
when iced skids of 250 roses
sold for $2 at Faneuil Hall.
So for $8 I bought
