Editor's Selection of Poems
Injudicious Gardening

by Marianne Moore

If yellow betokens infidelity,
I am an infidel.
I could not bear a yellow rose ill will
because books said that yellow boded ill,
white promised well.

However, your particular possession,
the sense of privacy,
indeed might deprecate
offended ears, and need not tolerate 
effrontery.
