My Purple Gown from Tyre
By Benjamin Rosenbaum
 
From “Songs of Youth”

PINK azaleas and dogwood
Are crowded close at my feet.
Whitethroats and warblers
Are weaving a trail between the trees
And cobalt-golden sky.        5
Now I’ll mount Ole Tony and ride
The rolling fields!
Old Ninevah’s riches will be around me,
And my overalls will be
My purple gown from Tyre!        10
