One who listens, and knows she may not be cheery all the time,
for giving mere pleasure her talk will not be destined for.
And he must heed her broken sentences uttered in grief,
her incomprehensible words issued from joy,
her apparently nonsensical questions emanating from curiosity,
her imaginative stories and complex verses.
She’s no cruel to test out his patience,
but he must be willing to leave her wondering what more to say!
