An Ode to Stripes & Flowers (& a sonnet)

Stripes and flowers, what an ultimate match

Masculine and feminine, hand in hand

The strip says to the floret, what a catch

Your beauty I just can’t bear to withstand

Lines upon lines of white space and color

Will dance off nicely against fresh flowers,

Colorful blossoms seem proud and taller

Next to stripes; you could stare at it for hours

Combine Anthropologie and J. Crew,

Mix sweet with savory, soft with sharp,

A marriage of beauty you can’t undo

If you oppose, you can jump off a scarp.

Stripes and flowers, you truly blow my mind

If Nick vetoes this, he’s patently blind.
