Back Next This is Poem 14

She could put on diamonds
Well she could put on glass
She could dress herself in fashion
Well she could put on colors
She could sit in her garden overlooking the lake
Well… ah well here resided the difference
Here resided the difference
Oh she so loved nature
And an airy room
With a lovely view
With a most comfortable chair
To contemplate all this nearby.
And all she had
Was a broken down flat.

Irwin R. Shaw - August 18th 1982
