were wishing you well?
and the night winds woven with fireflies,
the scent of lilies, the gardenia
with its vast perfume, soothing you.
and that each rose unfolds
so that tomorrow from your high window, Lady
you will see the rose garden, differently.
and in the afternoon
discover that you, too
are blooming again.
and this is my greeting card
to my sister.
and my friend.
