LIFE
On her only room window she painted spring and when the night is approached its flowers are withered the window has inclined and shed a sea of tears then slept under the window where its spring was weeping, withered the yellowness of the death. On the morning the window has witted on its nap perfumed drizzle, jumped as the spring was retrieving its freshness on its eyelids ..
