SPINSTER IN LOVE - LAURA DONALD


She worked at eighteen,
Most beautiful and shapely,
For a few bucks a amonth
On a casual basis, worked
Hard as a stenographer
Fell in love with her boss
A sales manager,
Getting a post as an executive
Later aftera few years,
Whence the boss left
After bight with his bossy boss,
Never leaving her lover,
Growing to be a manger
In the company she worked for
Desiring to deliver
His child out of love
Not choosing any other,
Aborting five times,
carrying her love for him,
Laura stayed a spinster
For quarter of centuary,
Lving with her parents,
With a lone heart full of love.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
