"Dream gently, Girl."
"I'll try, without trying, to dream gently.
You're already away and will get this early in the morning. Two of my favorite things: to be sent to sleep or woken up with an e-mail all my own.
I'll pin it to my nightgown's front, this e-mail. A lost little girl with a please-take-me-safe-to-sleep note.
And when I board the train (with a satchel full of words and frames and paper planes of legal pad yellow) to dreamland or sleepville or wherever wishes take us, the conductor will say:
Oh! That's the girl with the ladder and apple friends.
Two stops and a swap at Dover, to Babylon for her.
Good night all."
