"Barcarole For Bathtub"
|The following is a selection from Miss MacF-P's collection "Poesy In Pastels."|
A perfect place to place my posterior.
"Neath the the window!
'Neath the glass!
An arboreal assignation for my ass.
Who can it be?
A husband, a child, or some vagabond
needing to pee?
Here, with ferns and candles
and easily accessible senior assistance handles,
I sit and sing
(my words taking wonderfully to wing!)
my Barcarole For Bathtub
for Camera FLASH! at Real Toads.
Note: Millicent MacFarquhar-Pellington's masterpiece "Barcarole For Bathtub" was published by Snoot & Sons in 1923 as the centerpiece of her fifth collection "Poesy In Pastels." Millicent's first four volumes--including the celebrated "Mongoose Sonnets" sold more than 3 million copies and have been translated into German, French, Urdu and Icelandic. A two-time winner of the Blemish Prize For Literature, Ms. MacFarquhar-Pellington remains beloved today, twenty years after her passing from combination skin in 1998.
