"This is true."

Of a Girl

January 11, 2019

    As she spoke a kind word to a stranger, as she gathered the fallen leaves and flowers to her breast, as she twirled through the room all by herself, as she cleared the snow and the stones from her path and built castles out of them; in a light summer dress, in winter trappings that turned her into a bear; singing, or not singing; speaking, or not speaking; smiling, or not smiling; as she looked at things far off where neither my sight nor my imagination could reach, and as she looked at me, I thought,

    “How beautiful she is.”
