11. Oenothera

“Ah! You're the person from this morning!”

said the princess in a surprise.

 

“Yes, I am.”

 

“What are you doing here?”

         she asked excitedly.

“You need to change quickly

         or you will catch a cold!”

 

“Thank you for your concern,”

he refused. “But I'm fine.

I came here to take a bit of fresh air.

Then it started raining and it brought

a pleasant honey scent from the garden.

I wondered

         what was the name

                            of the flowers.”

 

She was astonished but answered

“This flower unfurls in the evening

and is called the flower of afterglow,”

then added

         “Oenothera.”

 

He opened his eyes widely in a surprise.

“Oh, so that's what the name

Oenothera

               meant.”

 

After a pause he continued

“Then the person who was named

for such a wonderful flower

must be admirable.

                            Right?”
