We all have a story

Letters!
Wrinkled, thumbed, yellowed.
Dated her collegedays.
All beginning with
"Dearest Dora".
Dora! Doreen!
The vexatious old Doreen!
Incorrigibly narky,
Definitely unsweet.
And yet,
Here it is.
Her very own
Sweet,
Pricey,
Sealed carton story,
Being sold to scrapdealer,
With quivering hands.

  3. Wonderful and so sympathetic. Made me think of Scrooge, as I just finished my annual re-read of A Christmas Carol.
