The writer of the poem takes her chaperon to the play; however, the chaperon thinks she is the one taking the writer to the play. There is a very proud young man who thinks the writer of the poem comes for his sake but he is saddened to find out that she comes for the sake of her chaperon. The chaperon is so beautiful that she attracts everyone’s attention. Young and old men come from all directions to greet the beautiful queen. The chaperon gets excited and her face shines with joy as many people come to greet her. On the other hand, the poem writer admires her and wishes that she was as young as her chaperon.
On their way home, the poem writer would enquire from her chaperon about her experience she had when many people showed up to greet her. The writer would also be interested in knowing the secret behind the beauty of the chaperon, and the reason why many people would show up just to greet her. On the other hand, the chaperon would explain what she felt as many of her old friends came to greet her. She would further make it clear to the writer that the kind gestures from her old friends awakened her heart, filled her with hope and made her experience great joy.
The writer would also ask about the chaperon’s experience in the play; what interested her the most, and the areas that would require changes. Additionally, the writer would point out any part of the play that did not portray its intended purpose, and further explain the necessary steps that would have been taken to revise it. Owing to her advanced age, the writer would narrate to her chaperon the kind of life she experienced during her young age. She would also share about the kind of responses received from both the young, and old men during her days. Such a conversation would be instrumental in enhancing the writer’s insights regarding poetry and her femininity.
