Mid­dle-aged sec­re­tary

Isis Town and Country - - Opinion - By NANCE BUR­NETT

THE mid­dle-for­ties sec­re­tary Wise and worn but not con­trary, Gazes not all blank and starey, Made by passes some­what wary. Con­sid­ered an­cient by her cronies Well aware who are the phonies, Watches he who fol­lows ponies, Com­pas­sion shows, for even moa­nies. By-passed at times by youth­ful faces Yet she not her post dis­graces, Right-arm, mother in some cases, Keep­ing up with all the paces. Though oth­ers may be none the wiser Be­neath that calm there lies a geyser: Her thoughts, like money to a miser, Oh, to meet a Sheik or Kaiser!
