A Moment


That treasured moment from me flew,
Leaving behind a solemn cherished hue.
From a distant empty zone,
Emerged a tongueless moan.
I stared at a parting shadow
And felt my moistened brow.

In the heart of a memory,
A woe untold I can see.
A wish in the vacuum shiveres,
The lips of a secret hope quivers.
Gently, I hold the hand of a jaded pretense
And fragrance of a withered flower grows dense.
I collect the shattered pieces of a hollow promise
Nothing stirs; I stop pining for the fleeting bliss.

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.

True, a new mistress now I chase,
