The New Omar
A book of verses underneath the bough,Related posts:
Provided that the verses do not scan,
A loaf of bread a jug of wine and Thou,
Short-haired, all angles, looking like a man.
But let the wine be unfermented, pale,
Of chemicals compounded, God knows how—
This were indeed the Prophet's Paradise,
O Paradise were Wilderness enow.
