Upon her watch her eyes did gaze
To see the carriage arrive so soon
Barely did her feet touch the carpet
Before another task beckons her forth
Longing for a moment to herself
She wondered when the season will pass
Without a wedding or birthday party
Or carriage rides and voyages abroad
Without the tea parties and evening salons
Or the theatre outings and deer sighting
She wondered when she’ll sit a bit
And finally finish the novel she’d began.
Thank you for reading.
