"Wedding Portrait," by Frans Hals‘Hiding My Glee’ and Other Poetry by E.V. Wyler The Society November 9, 2016 Humor, News of Note, Poetry 2 Comments Hiding My Glee (Rondeau) Hiding my glee, lest my spouse see the merriment mulling in me. I’ll deftly deflect our next fight by delaying my lone delight that the winner’s my nominee. Elections won’t topple “Team We”: To heal the hurt, I’ll hopefully ponder his political plight hiding my glee. Empathy is the proper key to peace when partners disagree. Mixed marriages of “left” and “right” require truces to reunite … Rather than roil his rage, I’ll be hiding my glee. “Defriended” Sociologists will say, “My golly! Many acquaintances have ended via the Facebook folly of being ‘defriended’”! E. V. “Beth” Wyler grew up in Elmont, NY. At 43, she obtained her associate’s degree from Bergen Community College.
