salutations to a mouse - marsden hartley

Salutations To A Mouse
by Marsden Hartley

If a mouse makes a nest
Of one's written words
Is there else to do but accept
The flattery?
I have deemed it wise to do so.
I have thanked him
As he scurried in and out
Of the room.
He has faced the winter
With a nest of my words.
I did not suspect them
Of such worth against the cold.
