Connections: January 14.17

2015-10-61-bed-warmerIt’s a wonderful thing

how we devise

the dressing of function

to please the eyes

thus the bed warmer

whose humble duty

the artist crowns

with touch of beauty

it isn’t enough

to warm our tosies

it must perforce

be painted with posies.

Thanks again to the S.W. Berg Photo Archives.
