She talks with her husband,
a sign of a strong marriage.
Their conversation cover hours,
continents, millennia past and yet.
He’s been dead ten years now. 

The young couple on the south farm
think she’s a sad and lonely case.
The old widow to the north
understands, is both jealous and sad. 

Her kids think it’s all quite right,
and her friends are so happy for her
for the happiness he still brings.
