Going to Him! Happy letter!
Tell Him-
Tell Him the page I didn't write-
Tell Him-I only said the Syntax-
And left the Verb and the pronoun out-
Tell Him just how the fingers hurried-
Then-how they waded-slow-slow-
And then you wished you had eyes in your pages-
So you could see what moved them so-

Tell Him-it wasn't a Practised Writer-
You guessed-from the way the sentence toiled-
You could hear the Bodice tug, behind you-
As if it held but the might of a child-
You almost pitied it-you-it worked so-
Tell Him-no-you may quibble there-
For it would split His Heart, to know it-
And then you and I, were silenter.

Tell Him-Night finished-before we finished-
And the Old Clock kept neighing “Day”!
And you-got sleepy-and begged to be ended-
What could it hinder so-to say?
Tell Him-just how she sealed you-Cautious!
But-if He ask where you are hid
Until tomorrow-Happy letter!
Gesture Coquette-and shake your Head!
