write a poem in the form of a “to-do list of an unusual person or character. 

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.
