A Penny for Your Thought

Figure descriptions
A decorated initial letter “H” from the poem’s first word, “Husband,” appears to float in the top-left corner of the illustration. Branches and curled twigs extend from the letter’s extremities. Below and to the right of the initial letter, an ornately dressed young woman sits at the bottom of a flight of stairs with a folded fan in her hand. To her left, Cupid loads an arrow into his bow. A man stands in front the woman and looks down at her while turned away from the viewer. He holds his hat behind his back with his right hand, and appears to hold a single rose in front of him with his left hand. 1/2 page.
