Where you were

in desolation and quiet strife

this wood teems with life

that disconsolate fly drones on

spewing and rolling the sweet

cherry treats of those two birds

sharing your love songs

that squirrel buries your secrets

and this forlorn badger burrows

the rubble as that rat and toad quibble

over sticks and stones and broken bones

this ignored beaver gnaws

sees and saws

damns and bores

alters the flaws

and say of this river

on it goes on it goes

through springs

and bitter winter blows

takes away memories of you

washes those tears

dances itself far from here

far from these mountains

of gold and green

and that beautiful valley

where once you were seen.
