Oh to be Jane!

Jane Austen rice

Oh to be Jane
In her Regency gown
Walking along
The pretty spa town

Writing of love
And consequence
Playing the piano
And pondering with pen

For you dear Jane
I’d play you host
For you are the lady
I admire the most

I’d serve you tea
Of the finest kind
To discover you Jane
Was my greatest find

I’d be your confidant
And greatest friend
My favourite pen
I would gladly lend

We’d talk of fashion,
music and Art
It’s such a shame
We are years apart

Over 200 years
Of admiration
You have had
I’m sure you’d be thinking
You’ve not done bad!

A most famous author
A lady of history
Still much of your life
Remains a mystery

You left no journals
Of your daily thoughts
But I imagine your character
From the books I have bought
