Queen of the Mustards

At the close of Spring
With unrefined orchestral textures
With a quick-step and a spirited promenade
Hesperis matronalis, Mother-of-the-Evening
Crowds around mailboxes
Sprawls thru the woods
Decorates the porch
Jumps for joy
And waves hello.

Dames Rocket lives to show off
She's born to be seen
Her ivories and violets harmonize
Chorus and verse
Unwinding my coiled spring
With a caressing magenta glow.
