Boston Fern

Boston Ferns on proper porch
I’m a Boston Fern,
not from some swamp, southern.
I hang only on white painted rails.

My standards are high,
so that you can rely,
that established, good taste will prevail.

So keep me in style,
and I will beguile,
and don’t listen to pretentious tales.

But I must confess,
that the off-season’s mess,
are just so many ugly details.
