Two little girls of Third Grade
Gave me flowers in a spirit of play
Two Kadams* they were
Fleurs pour moi?
Les filles ont ri et ont disparu

The Kadam season passed
Their undaunted spirit plunged on origami
Two paper dolls I received
Tes poupee de papier
Est tres bien
Les filles ont ri et ont disparu

They are now in Seventh Grade
Kadams stick to the trees
Paper is a paper
Elles ont grandi
