The Chronicles of Simon the Lover
Chapter Twelve: Muriel’s Redemption
At the delivery of the morning paper

Another letter was published
In the Town Chronicle
But from a different author
“To the town where I was born
And the town where I have spent my life

And we frowned back in disapproval
We have heard love’s confession
As priests with deaf ears
We have all sinned in judgment
I must tell you goodbye
I go to the city
To find my love
With sweet regret,
