LAMENT
Here now    along the long deep water
that I thought that I thought that you always
that you always

here now    along the long deep water
where behind the rushes    behind the rushes the sun
that I thought that you always but always

that always your eyes    your eyes and the breeze
your eyes and the breeze
always ruffling    ruffling the water

that always in a trembling silence
that I would always live in a trembling silence
that you always    those waving rushes always

along the long deep water   that your skin would always
that always in the afternoon your skin
always in the summer in the afternoon your skin

that always your eyes would melt
that your eyes would always melt in happiness
always in the motionless afternoon

along the long deep water    that I thought
that I thought you would always
that I thought that happiness would always

that always the light motionless in the afternoon
that always the afternoon light    your ochre-coloured shoulder
your ochre-coloured shoulder always in the afternoon light

that always your cry    hanging
always your bird’s cry    hanging
in the afternoon    in the summer    in the breeze

that always the breeze trembling    that always but
always the ruffled water    the afternoon    your skin
I thought that everything would always    I did not think that ever

here now along the long deep water    that ever
I thought that always    that never    that you would never
that frost would never   that no ice would ever the water



here now along the long deep water    I never thought
that snow would ever the cypress    I never thought
that snow    that the cypress would never    that you would never more
