Anticipation

 I hold her letter as I stand,
 Nor break the seal; no need to guess
What dainty little female hand
 Penned this most delicate address.
The scented seal—I break it not, But stand in stormy revery; I tremble as I wonder what She who penned this will say to me.
I wonder what my wife will say If so it be she e’er shall know I only mailed her note today— It should have gone two weeks ago!
