For Much Too Long

copyright 2018

She went to bed in joy,
Excited to have guests,
Their house had been quiet,
Their family small,
For much too long.

She was still unsure,
She was not used to men,
Except for their servant,
It had been only women,
For much too long.

She was baffled by the boys,
They were well-mannered,
Not like the men she saw,
There had been so many soldiers,
For much too long.

The one was polite and pleasant,
He complimented her Sunday dress,
The other thanked her for the biscuits,
Between mouthfuls, staring at his plate.

She went to bed in joy,
Dreaming of dancing,
Dreaming of biscuits,
She had been hidden
For much too long.
