Salutation to a Mouse
By Marsden Hartley
 
IF a mouse makes a nest
Of one’s written words,
Is there else to do but accept
The flattery?
I have deemed it wise to do so.        5
I have thanked him
Sufficiently
As he scurried in and out
Of the room.
He has faced the winter        10
With a nest of my words.
I did not suspect them
Of such worth against the cold.
