Amaryllis, favorite daughter

“Amaryllis, favorite daughter,
I miss those long ago hours we shared, our mutual whis-
perings and field and town delights. I pray soon you will
answer my letter so that this separation may find its fixity
in the space dividing us, or rather, may enrich the space
that separates us.”

– Barbara Guest (from The Countess from Minneapolis, 1976)
