When Mangos Grew on the Magnolia


I dreamed once
that mangos were growing
on the magnolia
while underneath the wisteria
the iguanas
danced the mambo
Then someone shot
your plane from the sky
and it fell into the desert
No mangos in the desert
or magnolias
But I awoke
and no mangos
were growing on the magnolia
and there were no iguanas
doing the mambo
under the wisteria
What a relief

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
