The Chronicles of Simon the Lover- Chapter Six: Curiosity

The Chronicles of Simon the Lover

Chapter Six: Curiosity


All wondered amongst themselves

Who was the author of this outpouring?

These were not the words of a simple man

Or of a plain, small town fellow they said

The author of this poem was surely

One to be esteemed for his love and words


What of Muriel?

Let’s just say her smile was a bit

Wider than usual that day

As her heart beat harder

Than it ever had

Energized by such curiosity alive within her


And Simon?

He saw her smiling

And it was the best day of his life

Though many men have provoked

One thousand smiles from the one they love

For Simon

This was the first


Once again they had lunch together

From across the room

Muriel smiling and chatting

With her girlfriends from the bank

And Simon spoke silently with his pen

But with a greater sense of

Freedom than before


Off went another letter

To the Town Chronicle

This time it was in the next day’s paper

And the expectation of the town

(And of Muriel)

Was not disappointed
