The Chronicles of Simon the Lover- Chapter Twelve: Muriel’s Redemption

The Chronicles of Simon the Lover

Chapter Twelve: Muriel’s Redemption


At the delivery of the morning paper

Muriel’s heart broke

How could she have passed judgment

On true love?

How could she have fallen prey

To her own weakness?

To her own shameful pride?

She knew her course of action…


The following day

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

We beheld true love smile

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,
