"Nothing less than the wisdom of nonsense will suffice / Carried gingerly in exquisitely kid-gloved hands"

Transcendental Sonnet #1293:

A Yellow Room with Large Red Roses


In a yellow room with large red roses on the wall

A room chiefly fit for hobbits vertically small

I would take my rest into the west north by south by east

To find the best having escaped the belly of the beast


And if sweet love should meet me there then that would be fine

I bring a string-bag with six apples on which to dine

If you have rice that would be nice and I would make some tea

And shake myself dry before I must fly across the sea


After apples after rice I think it would be nice

To see exotic lands where everyone understands

Nothing less than the wisdom of nonsense will suffice

Carried gingerly in exquisitely kid-gloved hands


A refugee from epidemics of obesity

A yellow room with large red roses is where I would be

Images of pixies and elfin characters are set free in this delightful poem. Well done again. Steven.
