A Holiday

Rating: 2.8

The Wife
The house is like a garden,
The children are the flowers,
The gardener should come methinks
And walk among his bowers,
Oh! lock the door on worry
And shut your cares away,
Not time of year, but love and cheer,
Will make a holiday.

One of Ella's cross-cutting poems between a husband and his wife. Maybe she was trying something different for the first time.
