     MARY MARY HOW DOES YOUR GARDEN GLOW?

I found Mary on Madison avenue and second
and suddenly infatuation was reckoned
me, from the lower east side living in a park
yet instantaneously each of us felt a spark

her golden hair glimmered with a gleam in her eye
and she smelled better than granny's home made pie
as a bribe I asked her if she'd like a rose
because she came from a garden where gentility grows

much to my surprise she said “yes” so we walked to the store
and suddenly, for a change, money didn't matter any more
I could live on soda and candy if I were forced to do so
all of this for a luminescent lover who I was awed by her glow

she was where a lady like her is ere to be found
and I from the hood was nowhere bound
but one look and one flower made me feel at ease
so now I believe we were made for each other and the universe agrees
