Jane The Short Story Writer

Just one more fringe dweller of the wordsmith trade
As a writer of short stories she may never make the grade
But she does not yearn for money and fame
Or as a writer to become a great literary name
A writer who has written short stories by the score
She writes for her own enjoyment and little else more
A few stories she has written have been published in magazines locally
One of many ignored by the literary critics in that respect one of the majority
Since those the literary critics embrace are of the privileged few
To this you may say this is not anything new
Jane the short story writer in her mid seventies was never a mother or anyone's wife
Writing short stories as a hobby is the love of her life
It is each to their own as the wise one does say
With the humble Jane it is also this way.
