Au Revoir

P.L. Travers (from Mary Poppins)

Mary Poppins had gone. Jane read the note she had left. ‘Mrs Brill!’ she called. ‘What does “Au Revoir” mean?’
‘I think, Miss Jane dear, it means “To meet again”.’
Jane and Michael looked at each other. Joy and understanding shone in their eyes. They knew what Mary Poppins meant. 
Michael gave a long sigh of relief. ‘That’s all right,’ he said shakily. ‘She always does what she says she will.’
He turned away.
‘Michael, are you crying?’ Jane asked.
He twisted his head and tried to smile at her.
‘No I’m not,’ he said ‘it is only my eyes.’
