Written by: Ellis Parker Butler | Biography
 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!
