THE WISCONSIN LITERARY MAGAZINE Suzanne: I'll also have to leave you; we'll probably see you tomorrow again. (aside) Thought she knew John. Annable: So did I. Anna May: (to Tessie) Beg your pardon, but are you the girl we wrote to? (All finally leave stage talking and laughing and Tessie re- mains alone.) Annable: (returns) Don't you care what those girls say; they only mean half they say. I like you and I want you to come to see me. (Goes right and before leaving the stage says to herself) I don't see how Suzanne can say she's a bean-pole; and she hasn't any freckles at all. Tessie: And so John's ashamed of me! I didn't think it made any difference to him. If I only were home again with dad-and (walks toward the right.) (Enter John quickly on the left.) John: Tessie! Tessie! I've come back to tell you-It's all a mistake. Just listen a minute; I was a fool. It was all on account-on account-of- Tessie: -A country girl. (Exit.) Jolhn: Tessie. Curtain. THE ANCIENT MARINER. B. D. Ages ago I ranged the outer seas, The shimmering main that moves below the moon, The shoreless waters of the vaulted noon, The drizzling oceans winter could not freeze; With halyards twisted by the Genoese, And sails of linen from the docks of Tyre, I bounded onward: for the western fire Beaconed between the Gates of Hercules. And lo, today, with hundred flags unfurled By all the nations, dwelling either side, I swept from Azores round the Horn to Spain, And left behind me, circling all the world, As aery offspring of my speed and pride, The long smoke winnowed by the sun and rain. 202
