Jane Austen’s To Do List
by arlene s bice
time to write a letter
to sister Cassandra
place it in my reticule
along with my wee book (2”)
tiny mirror, change pocket,
handkerchief, and snuffbox;
send it through the Royal Mail
go to the apothecary for Mamma
take Queen cake to our ill neighbor
pick some violets from the meadow
visit the circulating library for a book
to read to the family after evening meal.
