"Two rooms--how drab!" you say,
And gaze at it with careless scorn;
"Quite obviously it didn't come
From Where the latest fashion arts are born!"
But, "Stop! Please curb your foolish jibes,
That tongue cuts at firm foundations laid;
You cannot see it all in chair and rug,
You're speaking of a home that love has made."
