Feb. 19 Poem

One day I’ll find a flower-shop
With roses fresh in bloom
Which I’ll place on the windowsill
Until the sweetness fills the room
One day you’ll find my usual route
as my eyes brighten with falling snow
and we’ll talk about how lovely it is
that, though its cold, things can grow
One day, you’ll look out the window
and say, “What a lovely view”
and I, of course, will agree
while looking straight at you.
