Dedicated to my loving readers!
Oh how happy I am not to be one of those ornamental flowers that decorate the border! I’m not at risk of falling into uncouth hands and am sheltered from frivolous discourse.
Unlike my sisters, the plants, nature makes me grow far from streams, and I don’t like cultivated gardens or land.
I am wild. Far from society, my sojourn is spent in deserts and solitude, for I don’t like mixing with the crowd!
… Free, I am free!
