Sunday Poem

A Pitcher of Mignonette by Henry Cuyler Bunner

A PITCHER of mignonette
In a tenement’s highest casement,—
Queer sort of flower-pot—yet
That pitcher of mignonette
Is a garden in heaven set,
To the little sick child in the basement—
The pitcher of mignonette,
In a tenement’s highest casement.

from Bartleby
