Carl Sandburg - Throw Roses

THROW roses on the sea where the dead went down.
  The roses speak to the sea,
  And the sea to the dead.
Throw roses, O lovers—
  Let the leaves wash on the salt in the sun.        5

We have this table in our basement, and it has two hmelets that look like eyes, a football for a nose, and on the bottom it has a squiggly line that looks like a mouth!

Oussama from Russia
