Jane is depicted as a child way beyond her years through the way that she expresses herself and behaves.

Careless, they scattered pictures: mother, wife, Strikes lived through, hard concessions bought and sold In a level-headed bargaining with life, Told anecdotes in which her strength rang gold, Her eyes were clear, her wants as plain as salt. The past became a mint from which they struck Small change till that room glittered like a vault.
