i know very little




i know very little
English, you said
and proceeded
to recite:

I took her hand
in mine,
and we went out
of the ruined place;


and, as the morning mists
had risen long ago
when I first left the forge,
so the evening mists
were rising now,


and in all
the broad expanse
of tranquil light
they showed to me,
I saw no shadow


of another parting
from her


then added:

but i am filled
with Great Expectations


and perceptibly
faded

for good.
