A Cockcrow In Lace

the sunspots ensconced behind howdy-do curtains a cockcrow in lace white watering can french blue white sprouts of ivy deep green unhackneyed eggs bright brown the pale yellow sun flickers snow and no one wears silk nightgowns as knees fall, and wrinkles like weeds are read on the backside of palms that hurry the yolks and sizzle the bacon, pour coffee into old cups one for the geezer who grumps but puckers up for his buttercup
