Neither with nor without a lover. Neither singing nor silent. She is either putting on or taking off her clothes. The water is for bathing, for washing the porch. The house is either hers or she is a stranger standing hidden in the trees about to be called. She will walk easily to the door or run away. She is either clothed in night or naked in white silk. If she has jewelry, it was given. If not, she doesn't mind. She carries a love in her as a rose has its scent.
