Undine of St. Agnes School
Don’t look down, Undine, at the waves in the meandering stream.
Look up at the yellow sailboats stranded on the shore-waiting
for the waters to rise.
Look up from the empty tin can in the foreground of grass.
I am reading Edith Wharton’s The Custom of the Country
for you, Mrs. Connell. With love.
Hurray for Mopsy and Tessa!
