"When you go" (Edwin Morgan)


When you go,
if you go,
And I should want to die,
there's nothing I'd be saved by
more than the time 
you fell asleep in my arms
in a trust so gentle 
I let the darkening room
drink up the evening, till
rest, or the new rain
lightly roused you awake.
I asked if you heard the rain in your dream&
and half dreaming still you only said, I love you.

Edwin Morgan


Now. Here.

Then one day, just like that
and seemingly out of order,
a gust of pixie dust blows your Universe
open ― a space at a sacred place
in your heart, in your mind
conjure old new wor[l]ds
from the solace of nowhere ―
a promise, in now here.

                                                (just like that)
                                                In a brave instant.


Wheat field

Five somber days gone by. Over
the wheat fields of Europe's Granary
a Firebird was shot down. In broad daylight.

Now a ghostly train travels back. At night
wagons loaded with corpses. Instead of grain  
death. Hatred maddening the senses.

The ripe wheat left in the field.
Bent down. Unharvested.

"I'll tell you a riddle. 
You're waiting for a train, a train that will take you far away. 
You know where you hope this train will take you, but you don't know for sure. 
But it doesn't matter. . .
How can it not matter to you where that train will take you?"
