“Wind up the world the other way…”

Another love letter! And yes… it comes from the amazing website “Letters of Note“. This letter here is written by Charlie ‘Bird’ Parker to his long term lover Chan Woods. This letter grabbed me the first time I read it and I keep thinking about the words. It’s so unbelievably poetic and romantic and articulates so much the way that I feel. I hope you like it as much as I do.

To you;

The way I thought was wrong, having not known, it was right. Here is the proof of my feelings, Don’t hate me, love me forever: — — — —

Beautiful is the world, slow is one to take advantage. Wind up the world the other way. And at the start of the turning of the earth, lie my feelings for thou.

To you
Shame on me.
I love you.
