(September 25 1962 / New York City)

The Lakes of Titan


The lakes of Titan are cold and still
I swim in the deep blue ripples
Watching the methane clouds drift overhead
The spinning
Rings of stern Saturn
Keep watch and company as I,
Alone on this cold world
Far from the sun
Far from those I left behind
Far from the distant dreams I dreamt
Far from the fragrances of paradise
Weep frozen tears for frozen flowers
That will never bloom again
