A LEAVE-TAKING: 2, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Your hand in mine for a space
Last Line: And you -- well, the red rose white.
Subject(s): Absence; Separation; Isolation


YOUR hand in mine for a space,
Through a brief living sigh;
The red rose white in your face,
And a swift good-bye.
One moment! ah, could it be
Life's veriest depth and height!
The death of my soul for me --
And you -- well, the red rose white.
