A marvelous melody depicting the state of mind of a lovelorn wife whose husband has gone far away for job leaving her behind to lament his absence and wishing his early return to fulfill her lovely demands. A great classic deserving classic poem of the day.

Start working at home with Google. It’s the most-financially rewarding I've ever done. On tuesday I got a gorgeous BMW after having earned $8699 this last month. I actually started five months/ago and practically straight away was bringin in at least $96, per-hour........ www.GeoSalary.com

WO wonderfully canonizing - I here, thou there, yet both but one. /// nice loving letter
The heartcry of a woman who misses her husband, and finds but little solace in viewing her children, 'true living pictures of their father's face.' But back in those times, men had to go where there was work available... A well-penned poem by Anne Bradstreet.
wonderfully written and expressed BRAVO!
