It’s a beautiful house, but in the wrong place.
And the wildflowers, and the butterflies, the insects, the bats flying at twilight, oh yes, the beauty was undoubted!
It must be strange for you to be able to see your old house again this year because the water’s dropped?
Yes, yes, that’s true.
I would listen for children’s voices and sometimes I think I heard someone and I would call,but what I heard really was the cry of a bird.
Because in that valley, it was so beautiful but you can’t live on beauty alone.
