Charles Hice (May 13 2004 / Heaven)
Move in the Yellow Room.
'Ah, William, we're weary of weather, '
said the sunflowers, shining with dew.
'Our traveling habits have tired us.
Can you give us a room with a view? '
They arranged themselves at the window
and counted the steps of the sun,
and they both took root in the carpet
where the topaz tortoises run.
yes she Nancy Willard lived near the sea and she had tortoises by the score of them how apt and apropos that she said Ah William meaning Blake eye think eye have it now
she did this poem and they Stold it
this William guy
this poet Black or Blake
he took the poem for his very sake
he wrote the very idea and she thought they were talking to him
