Subject(s): Memory


I hold your memory, a sacred flame,
Unto the dim lamp of my loneliness,
Sighing that all too soon the radiance
Of my first love found its oblivion.
The ageless weaver, tireless as his loom,
Mingled the rich gossamer of our dreams
With stuff too pale and fragile to withstand
The bleak winds of a dark adversity.
That now we view the crumbled ruins of
Our dreams so helplessly, I blame not you
And, certainly, not I; but bow to fate --
For even the rock-ribbed caves of ocean change
The shape and hue of their impermanence
Before the rhythmic wish of tide and time.
