i saw a great teapot
i wanted to get you this stupendous
100% cotton royal blue and black checked shirt,
there was a red and black striped one too
then i saw these boots at a place called chuckles
they laced up to about two inches above your ankles
all leather and in red, black or purple
it was hard to have no money today
i won't even speak about the possible flowers and kinds of lingerie
all linen and silk with not-yet-perfumed laces
brilliant enough for any of the graces
full of luxury, grace notes, prosperousness and charm
but i can only praise you with this poem-
its being is the same as the meaning of your name
