ROUND UP

Stephen looked in two or three drawers before he unlocked the one that contained his manuscripts.
" It's just a little thing I wrote for my wife on her blrthday. You'll probably think it's rotten. It's called 'To Stella.' That's my wife's first name."
Charley Roberts read the poem:
Stella you today are twenty-three years old
And yet your hair is still pure gold.
Stella they tell me your name in Latin means a star And to me that is what you are . With your eyes and your hair so yellow I rate myself a lucky fellow Stella. You know I cannot afford a costly gift As you know it costs us all I make to live And as you know we are already in debt, But if you will stay well and healthy Until I am rich and wealthy
Maybe I will be more able then to give you a present Better than I can at present. So now Stella good-by for the present And I hope next year I can make things more pleasant. May you live to be old and ripe and mellow Is my kind birthday wish for you Stella.

" Do you mean to tell me," said Roberts, " that it was no trouble to write that? "
" It only took me less than a half-hour," said Stephen. " Listen," said Roberts. " Let me have it." "What do you want with it? "
" I can get it published for you." " Where at? "
" In the New York Standard. I've got a friend, George Balch, who would run it in his column. He doesn't pay anything, but if this was printed and your name signed to it, it might attract attention from people who do pay for poetry. Then you could make a lot of money on the side."
" How much do they pay? "
`' Well, some of the big magazines pay as high as a dollar a line." " I forget how many lines there is in that." Roberts counted them.
" Seventeen," he said. " And from what I've seen of old Townsend, I bet he doesn't pay you much more a week."
" And it only took me less than a half-hour to write," said Stephen.
