The Bed and Breakfast of My Dreams
Satin sheets with polka-dots
neatly placed upon the king-sized bed.
Plush peach carpet under feet
leaving dents where I stand.
Spiral Staircase up to balcony
where Ian Anderson plays
"Minstrel in the gallery" upon his flute.
Couch of blue with velvet upholstery
catches those who need a snooze.
Fluffy orange tabby finds a lap,
you wake to the sound of contentment.
Mahogany table, and captains chairs
delight the oriental rug below.
The smell of apple-walnut muffins
arouses the hunger of the guests.
Into the kitchen they prance
to savor the taste of delightful baking
created by their hostess,
at the bed and breakfast of my dreams.
