This old broken bottle

This old broken bottle
Once lived a grand old life
Shiny perfect treasures
Filled with scented delights
Upon a wooden desk
Adorned a silver tray
Pressed powders of rubies
Blue lavenders for May
Pretty as a picture
A lilt of jasmine pure
Fresh, a summer's daisy
So lovely and demure
Shards of glass now scattered
Emptied of all her ware
A vessel long forgotten
Was she ever truly there
