A Pitcher of Mignonette
By Henry Cuyler Bunner (1855–1896)
 
[From Airs from Arcady and Elsewhere. 1884.]

Triolet.

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,        5
  To the little sick child in the basement—
The pitcher of mignonette,
  In the tenement’s highest casement.
