A Midsummer Night's Dream
I didn’t see her at first, the girl in the red dress. I had been telling my ducks that the hot weather couldn’t last forever and that we were bound to have rain soon and she came right up behind me and asked me whether I intended upon talking to the ducks all night. I told her that the ducks usually like to go to sleep about nine, I was going to get drunk and listen to Radio Three if she wanted to join me. She laughed at that and said it was quite the strangest offer she’d received in a long time. And then some other came and spoke with her in a language that I didn’t recognise. She smiled at me then and said that it had been nice talking to me but she’d have to be on her way. I haven’t seen her since, the girl in the red dress.
