I WAS WRITING her a letter and the phone rang, and it was her, and I said, I'm so glad to hear your lovely voice I was just writing you a letter. And she laughed like a brook in spring and said you don't know who this is do you and I said Maybe I don't, you sound a little hoarse have you caught a cold? And she said no but I know how you feel your face must be red. And I said yes it is but you sound like her and you laugh like her. And she said when you're in love all the women in the world have only one voice and it's the voice of the woman you love and we all love you because you love one of us good-bye.
