To See Him Again

Never, never again?
Not on nights filled with quivering stars,
Or during dawn’s maiden brightness
Or afternoons of sacrifice?

Or at the edge of a pale path
That encircles the farmlands,
Or upon the rim of a trembling fountain,
Whitened by a shimmering moon?

Or beneath the forest’s
Luxuriant, raveled tresses
Where, calling his name,
I was overtaken by the night?
Not in the grotto that returns
The echo of my cry?

Oh no. To see him again
It would not matter where
In heaven’s deadwater
Or inside the boiling vortex,
Under serene moons or in bloodless fright!

To be with him…
Every springtime and winter,
United in one anguished knot
Around his bloody neck!
