Love letters

Poem: "Found Poems" by Robert Phillips, from Spinach Days.
(from a letter by Katherine Mansfield)

Dear Princess Bibesco,
I am afraid you must stop
writing these little love letters
to my husband while he and I
live together. It is one of the things

which is not done in our world.

You are very young. Won't you
ask your husband to explain to you
the impossibility of such a situation?
Please do not make me write to you
again. I do not like scolding people
and hate having to teach them manners.
