"I HAVE a new friend," thought Lee, "I have a lover,
Made of steel and fire as a lover ought to be,
And I do not much care if all the world discover
That I adore him madly and that he loves me.
"Everything I do nowadays is pleasant,
Talking, walking, brushing out my hair
Oh, isn't it fine a friend, not being even present,
Can give the world a meaning, and common things an air!"
