First Line Friday: Evidence of greatness

chest

Millie couldn’t believe her luck that morning
An eighteenth century, hand-carved oak hope chest
With original fixtures intact coming

She had to convince them that’s the real test
To sell it to her by using all her charm
Evidence of greatness is also her quest

An eighteenth century chest with its gendarme
The grandeur it gives as well as history
Tell them she’ll maintain it without any harm

A hand-carved oak hope chest that is so grandiose
If they don’t sell it to her a sad adios*
