A Pretty day

Photo by Michael Alford

a pretty day

(and every fades)

is here and away

(but born are maids

to flower an hour

in all, all)

o yes to flower

until so blithe

a doer and wooer

some limber and lithe

some very fine mower

a tall; tall

some jerry so very

(and nellie and fan)

some handsomest harry

(and sally and nan

they tremble and cower

so pale; pale)

for betty was born

to never say nay

but lucy could learn

and lily could pray

and fewer were shyer

than doll, doll.

E.E. Cummings
