your little voice
Over the wires came leaping
and i felt suddenly
With the jostling and shouting of merry flowers
wee skipping high-heeled flames
courtesied before my eyes
or twinkling over to my side
Looked up
with impertinently exquisite faces
floating hands were laid upon me
I was whirled and tossed into delicious dancing
with the pale important
stars and the Humorous
dear girl
How i was crazy how i cried when i heard
over time
and tide and death
your voice

    I think this explains what most of us don’t have words for, the excitement of an unexpected phone call from a special someone. Almost like your life is flashing b4 your eyes in just the 1st few seconds of you realizing who it is on the other end.
