DAY—
A formal garden carefully laid out
Closely cropped box-trees and the brilliant hues
Of myriad flowers.

The world—
But not the weary world;
Not the care-laden, toiling, sweating world.
The world of pleasure.

Plutocracy—
Superiority of wealth and learning.
Power, position, sleekness, snobbishness.

Society—five o'clock tea—
Five o'clock tea in the garden;
In the perfect garden;
In the formal, artificial garden.
