My friend –

I send you this gift, which is self-explanatory, and hope you’ll find the poet’s work more accessible than my obscure efforts to say some similar things. When I found this book last week I wanted to tell you about it, because it is to you that I have been addressing my thoughts.

I enclose a sprig of mint as an emblem of faith that you will visit and drink mint tea with me again sometime – I hope before too long, when I am less hurt, and less vulnerable, and better able to accept what you can offer.

Until then –

With enormous affection and care for you, my dear –
