From The Heart


She opened his latest letter
And looked at the picture enclosed
She read the letter; then again
She looked at the picture and smiled
One of her big beautiful smiles
She instantly missed everything
About him and the time they had
So she sat down and wrote him back
And told him this, and also that
She reads his letters but often
Does not reply because they leave
Her wanting to say so much but
Then she cannot find the right words
Because she thinks she could never
Be as clever as him with words
He read this letter that she wrote
And promptly sat down and composed
A one sentence letter to her:
You need never worry whether
Your words are clever or not so;
As long as they come from your heart

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:

at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
if I touch
