Timely Scroll

Vespia, my dearest sister-in-law
I write to reveal my emotions raw

Victulus has asked me to wait for him
He is travelling to Herculaneum

How I do wish he could have taken me
Not as a maid but as his wife to be.

Now jealous thoughts are rising in my breast
They shall torment me in my night time rest

Cruxilas and his daughter Delphinian
Also travelling in my love's caravan

She tried to seduce him in wanton ways
Her eyes, her dress and with her hair she plays

His love reassurance in days gone past
Has long faded now as the die's been cast

I have not told him of my pregnant state
Hope nothing shall happen to make him late

Remember this year AD79
When, at last, dear Victulus shall be mine.

May the Gods favour us both,
Flavia xx
