Patience Dreams

This tidbit is from a letter sent by
Patience Hawthorne to a close friend.

 

During my stay in Bath,

I attended a music soiree

at an elegant residence

in the Royal Crescent…

…and basked in the close

attention of a certain bold

gentleman without caring

who might notice.

I blush to admit how his

glance enlivened my senses.

‘Twas a moment stolen

from another lifetime,

a shared dream of love

than can never be…!
