MARION STREET, by            
First Line: Here stands an ancient dwelling built of wood
Last Line: Gay voices chime a merry roundelay.


Here stands an ancient dwelling built of wood,
An antique garden and a yard that now
Has blooms for every wistful, yearning mood.
Here is a heavy-laden orange bough.
Sequestered in a spacious, verdant yard,
A row of lime trees grow beside a gate.
Thick lemon bushes beckon for a bard.
Here guavas grow. I hear the croon of Kate.

On Marion Street that borders on the lane
An old house shields fine treasures, priceless, rare;
And in a garden, moist with tropic rain,
Thrive mangoes and the alligator pear.
At dawn and dusk on Marion Street today
Gay voices chime a merry roundelay.
