I Should Very Much Like

Poem

I should very much like to write by candlelight.

With a quill of course.

I shall write throughout the night.

After riding with the stable boy on his thoroughbred horse.

This I should very much like.

I should very much like to pen letters to men.

My sentences will tempt and tease.

I may invite a few now and then.

To romance me as they please.

Which I should very much like.

I should very much like to walk higher on the moors of Yorkshire.

As the Bronte sisters did before.

Watch the grass sweep around me like fire.

As the wind refreshes my inner core.

That I should very much like.

I should very much like to hold the key to any door that intrigues me.

Its unlocking shall be sweet.

I will discover the things that are yet to be.

And know your face when first we meet.

This I should very much like.
