A TALE OF TWO PRINCESSES

 

Once there was a princess who wept pearls,

and once there was a princess

who laughed flowers. Both died, I heard.

One of weeping

and the other of laughter.

But not because one’s eyes went dry

or the other forgot how to laugh.

One died of suffocation

entombed in pearls. The other choked

on a surfeit of flowers.

The pearls were sold for a fortune, I heard.

But the wilted flowers brought no gain at all.

Since then, I have heard

A woman’s tears have become

far more precious than her laughter.
