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

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
