How pleasurable to have you here, my friend,
Asking how many pumpkins I will get
This autumn; if the beetle sprays defend
My roses; if the old pain bothers yet.

I tell you, yes, we weathered winters well.
Surely (I often try our duet score --
Alone. (I am a Farmer in the Dell;
You play the modern compositions more.)

You laugh, wanting each triviality,
Because, you say -- and well I know it's true --
You have been gone infinitudes from me;
But I have never been away from you.
