There is a birthday present growing
In a far off land.

I wait to see her until she speaks
Chinese, English,
I donít know which.

My brother sired her
In a far off land.

Born on my birthday.
Heíll never forget the date again.

ooooooooooooooh! Love it! It has a softness and paucity that reminds me of some "bamboo and silk" music. Well done.
