Morning Glory


I know you can't stay,
Tomorrow, already,
You'll be going away.

Another tall charmer
Will smile in your place,
And laugh with a soft
Summer rain on her face.

To mounds of moss roses
That cuddle your feet,
I so admiringly sing.
To those pert portulacas
In wide-awake colors that zing! i
