The few steps of his cage,
On pads of velvet quiet,
In his quiet rage.

He hears the last voice at night,
The patrolling cars,
And stares with his brilliant eyes
At the brilliant stars.

~Leslie Norris

(SQP 2019)Read the following passage carefully:

1. Few guessed that this quiet, parentless girl growing up in New York City would one day become the First Lady of the United States. Even fewer thought she would become an author and lecturer and a woman much admired and loved by people throughout the world.
