Transcription

I remember the long veils of green rain feathered like the shawl of my grandmother — green from the half-green of the spring trees waving in the valley.

I remember the road like the one which leads to my grandmother’s house, a warm house, with green carpets, geraniums, a trilling canary and shining horse-hair chairs; and the silence, full of the rain’s falling was like my grandmother’s parlour alive with herself and her voice, rising and falling — rain and wind intermingled.

I remember on that day I was thinking only of my love and of my love’s house. But now I remember the day as I remember my grandmother. I remember the rain as the feathery fringe of her shawl.
