A Frosty Night

Rating: 3.0

Mother: Alice, dear, what ails you,
Dazed and white and shaken?
Has the chill night numbed you?
Is it fright you have taken?

Alice: Mother I am very well,
I felt never better;
Mother, do not hold me so,
Let me write my letter.

Mother: Sweet, my dear, what ails you?

A marvelous story could be contrived taking on this conversation. My thoughts run to a rebellious daughter in love with conflicting emotions in her head thinking to take bold steps but caught on by her mother.

To comment that this is simple totally misses the whole flow of the dialogue and shifting imagery as it evolves from beginning to end. The shifts have an elegance and subtly that wonderfully illuminate the caring relationship and gentle maternal insight into her child's behavior and responses. But at least you didn't just say it was interesting.
