Gilman, Charlotte Perkins, 1860-1935 (Author)Lane, Martha Luther, 1862-1948 (Addressee)
"I stop to add, dear Mrs. Lane / That we next week set off for Maine / And if you do not write again / Before that time it's very plain / That the production of your brain / Composed for me with toil and pain / Would not arrive, and I be fain / My head to twist and neck to crane/And ears to stretch and eyes to strain / To search for it, and search in vain / If I in sooth to search would deign / So write with all your might & main / The letter I desire to gain; / And write it without blot or stain / And loaded like a groaning wain / With literary fruit & grain / And loving words as thick as rain / Unless it be too great a drain / Upon your strength dear Mrs. Lane!"
