HEART'S DESIRE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: I know that I shall run away
Last Line: And ask themselves to tea!
Subject(s): Desire; Hearts; Love


I KNOW that I shall run away
Before the years go by
To find a lonely kitchen
And bake an apple pie.
A blue and emerald morning,
A mockingbird's clear trill,
A kitchen with white curtains,
And tulips on the sill!

There I shall pare red apples
And sprinkle on each slice
A snowy drift of sugar
And a little whiff of spice.
I'll dot the top with butter
Dewy yellow from cool crocks,
And the fragrant smell of baking
Will outscent the four-o'clocks.

And folk who call me foolish
Will pass and envy me,
And stop and sniff about a bit,
And ask themselves to tea!
