A snippet of conversation

... loosely translated

by Carol Nelson

Dear friends are leaving for their home in Turkey after a two years stay in
Melrose, Massachusetts, U.S.A. I will miss them.

This is a few lines of our conversation ... always personal and always poignant:

      He:   .."It is an idiom .. about a bird. A talking bird?"

       I:   "A parrot?"

      He:   "The bird is in a cage ... a beautiful cage ... a beautiful
             golden cage."

      He:   "The bird says ... "I want to go home."

     She:   ... "A nightingale."
