Velvet Beaulah iii

her dress – weaved by costly looms
rich dyes to flatter the eye and mind like summer blooms

the play of colour on the plush designs – nothing short of luxurious
making for a display both gracious and marvellous

for my private viewing pleasure
furnishing themes of thought and discourse

intelligently indulging my desires with consummate skill
intensely inducing a decorative opinion
as now it seems I’m again singing her praises
