The heart of the Diva with the ruby earring
long after she had left
the stage. Her audience, feeling bereft,
demanded an encore,
but "Less is more"
was her motto; though I must mention
how much their attention
had pleased her,
secret self with joy.
A table at the Savoy
had been booked by the young man who'd sent
with a note inviting her to dine
after the show. "Divine!"
was the word which escaped her lips.
Nothing could eclipse
her delight as she entered his carriage,
one thought in her mind - marriage!
