Miss Lloyd has now went to Miss Green

Jane Austen

 Next Poem          

Miss Lloyd has now sent to Miss Green,
As, on opening the box, may be seen,
Some years of a Black Ploughman's Gauze,
To be made up directly, because
Miss Lloyd must in mourning appear
For the death of a Relative dear--
Miss Lloyd must expect to receive
This license to mourn and to grieve,
Complete, ere the end of the week--
It is better to write than to speak

    Busy doing homework here and just read Miss Lloyd has now went to Miss Green by Jane Austen. Nice piece, kind of took me back to bygone days. Man, Austen really had a way with words!
