The Gardener XX: Day After Day He Comes

Day after day he comes and goes
Away.
Go, and give him a flower from my
Hair, my friend.
If he asks who was it that sent it, I
Entreat you do not tell him my name
For he only comes and goes away.
He sits on the dust under the tree.
Spread there a seat with flowers and
Leaves, my friend.
His eyes are sad, and they bring
Sadness to my heart.
He does not speak what he has in
Mind; he only comes and goes away.
