Never Learn

Moments Of Infinity


Here in the fading twilight
we are thoughtfully alone,
I mean to ask some questions—
we’ll speak poet to poet.

With you, with all your light,
with women born yesterday,
with all those who died,
and with those to know tomorrow,
I want to ask you:

Will they see my star in the sky?

It’s cold outside.
There is land enough for the dead,
there is time to hold the born,
and maybe you will meet me
when the morning comes …
or maybe: love, we’ll never learn.
