On Northanger Moor,
meet Emma Mansfield.
Implore sister character:
hide between park and abbey
card love from fortune
judge not affection or sensibility
read every prejudice
find rogue nerve
betray hope in gallant young scoundrel
attend novel persuasion and pride
arrive at lovely proposal
arrange marriage dance.

Publication is a tricky thing. Now that I put this poem on my blog and social media. There are very few places which would pay me to publish it. This is why tend not to self-publish in this or other ways.
However, sometimes playing with the words and sharing them is a reward all its own. Although there is a line or two in this poem that I am tempted to save for something greater, I wanted to get this out there and share with who ever is interested.
