Dear Sugar In The Delft Blue Bowl

dear sugar you have sparkled long enough
in the delft blue bowl shift out and come
with us cried her new companions

on the bluebird road. since everyone's
suddenly loquacious even the curtains.
she dimpled, yes!

and the cherry branches swayed without regret
but what they said you must imagine
as you imagine the day 

was like a dream as all days
should be but if not then
we'll read Maeterlinck hour by rainy hour

and count the flowers in the meadows
of Night having slept 
all their colours...
