Going to Him! Happy letter! Tell Him -- Tell Him the page I didn't write -- Tell Him -- I only said the Syntax -- And left the Verb and the pronoun out -- Tell Him just how the fingers hurried -- Then -- how they waded -- slow -- slow -- And then you wished you had eyes in your pages -- So you could see what moved them so --
Tell Him -- it wasn't a Practised Writer -- You guessed -- from the way the sentence toiled -- You could hear the Bodice tug, behind you -- As if it held but the might of a child -- You almost pitied it -- you -- it worked so -- Tell Him -- no -- you may quibble there -- For it would split His Heart, to know it -- And then you and I, were silenter.
Tell Him -- Night finished -- before we finished -- And the Old Clock kept neighing "Day"! And you -- got sleepy -- and begged to be ended -- What could it hinder so -- to say? Tell Him -- just how she sealed you -- Cautious! But -- if He ask where you are hid Until tomorrow -- Happy letter! Gesture Coquette -- and shake your Head!
