Urban Nymph

“And here we find little Daphne
in her place behind the door,
peeping over the papers
in her pending tray.
Not the liveliest member of the team
perhaps but, as I always say,
so diligent!
Always so willing to stay a bit late,
and perfectly able to step up too
if one of the more prominent
members of staff is away.
Such a lamb, Daphne.”
