The fairest Home I ever knew
Was founded in an Hour
By Parties also that I knew
A spider and a Flower —
A manse of mechlin and of Floes —

    I think that this poem is short and sweet with great meaning. I stumbled upon it while browsing in a Cape Cod book store and I have never forgotten it. I hate spiders and I love flowers. She takes two opposites and marrires them to create an situation of domesticy…home. Its beautiful.
