REJECTIONS, by            
First Line: I laughed when envelopes, self-addressed
Last Line: A levee-breaking flood of tears!
Subject(s): Poetry & Poets; Publishing; Publishers


I laughed when envelopes, self-addressed
And stamped, came homing every day;
My mail became the family jest,
Our postman snickered with the rest
In genial country village way.

At last a line came, "We accept . . ."
"Who's loony now," I mocked, "old dears?"
Then, whistling, from the room I swept,
And, face crushed in my pillow, wept
A levee-breaking flood of tears!
