MOLLIE MCGERNEY, by                    
First Line: Mollie mcgerney rubbed a chamois over her freckled face
Last Line: Mollie mcgerney's lips smiled.

MOLLIE McGERNEY rubbed a chamois over her freckled face,
And smoothed her copper-colored hair.
Mollie McGerney's thin lips were pressed closely together,
And her hazel eyes glanced from her book to her moving pen.
"Two thousand words on Napoleon!
How can I write two thousand words?
And I have to go to the dry goods store,
And the ten-cent store, and hurry home to eat, and dress for that dance!. . .
Paul Sherman is a fine fellow."
Mollie McGerney's lips smiled.
