"Going to him! Happy letter! Tell him--

Tell him the page I didn't write;

Tell him I only said the syntax,

And left the verb and the pronoun out.



Tell him just how the fingers hurried

Then how they waded, slow, slow, slow-

And then you wished you had eyes in your pages,

So you could see what moved them so.



"Tell him it wasn't a practised writer,

You guessed, from the way the sentence toiled;

You could hear the bodice tug, behind you,

As if it held but the might of a child;

You almost pitied it, you, it worked so.

Tell him--No, you may quibble there,

For it would split his heart to know it,

And then you and I were silenter.



"Tell him night finished before we finished

And the old clock kept neighing 'day!'

And you got sleepy and begged to be ended--

What could it hinder so, to say?

Tell him just how she sealed you, cautious

But if he ask where you are hid

Until to-morrow,--happy letter!

Gesture, coquette, and shake your head!"

.: :.

To me this is a letter in which she would like to reveal her true feelings towards someone but is finding it impossible to find the words. She is held back by her femininity and as she writes she is hoping that somehow the meaning may be found hidden in the words she writes. It takes her all night to compose this letter. She is going to hide it. Will it be sent? If so it will be a happy letter as it will be in physical contact with the person she thinks about.
