Of Bulbs & Things- -(Daffodil Planters)


Your brilliance crumbled like my shattered light bulb
All electric- 75 watts of lost power- -
Shattered illumines of genius and enlightenment, it is

Gone just like my 75 watt bulb- -blown
Now, i must plant more bulbs come the Fall;

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
