Illusion



That loveliness lingers warm
Like a glowing ember,
Though you may call this whimsy stuff
Mere words
Of self forgetfulness;
Still my words flock to you
Teeming, streaming
Down on each moment, down on each year
To passion’s limit
In radiant love
In deep longing
In black abysses.

I forgive...


What power has love but forgiveness?
In other words
by its intervention
what has been done can be undone.
What good is it otherwise?

William Carlos Williams.
