Learning English

Dear Mary,

Because your poems are not available in the German language, I've been studying English for five years now. I live in Switzerland. Sitting in my comfortable chair, the "Learners Dyctionary" on my lap and a volume of your poems - and heaven has been installed. Since I've been doing this, I've made steady progress on learning English and joyfully my soul follows the lines. Eventually bought a flight ticket to America. I want to see the landscape, the ocean, the sky, the trees which inspired you to write those wonderful poems.
