Sylvia’s Secrets

Sylvia McGrinnikay had secrets.
So many secrets that she could tell.
Secrets old.
Secrets new.
Secrets that she could sell.

She knew secrets about
The minister
The pie maker
The cake maker
The best tailor in town.

She knew secrets about
Fred Farddindash
Lara Collins
Mr. and Mrs. Henry Dredgerson
Alice Abbindingdown.

Everyone in town
Feared her
Dreaded her
Quaked and quailed about the day
She would reveal all.

Yet, Sylvia spent her life
With her mouth shut
And her secrets locked up.

She smiled at everyone’s
Anxieties and nervous fits
Whenever she appeared
Whenever she had an announcement to make.

Yet, she kept her secrets
And she kept them well.
Though she had many secrets
So many secrets,
She never did tell.

  1. Oh I’ve missed reading you! I’ve been so busy with school that I’ve hardly had the chance to read anyone lately. I really love this one. Hope you’re doing well. πŸ˜‰
