Good Morning, Ma'am

Eggs Benedict warmed beneath a silver dome; Fresh-squeezed juice in a crystal glass; Crisp, white linen spread upon the cart; A ‘good morning, ma’am’ -- this is first class. Ah, room service. Would that it could be My daily fare; with a touch of the phone pad, A cheerful voice asking, ‘May I take your order?’ To hear this each day would make me so glad. To lay back on a soft, plush pillow, To savor a French croissant, To linger over my espresso -- There is nothing else I want.

Are you describing a morning at a hotel here? It surely appears as if you are. You are describing everything pervasively well. Good one Deb.
