Else Cederborg

(30 April / Copenhagen)

The Parcel


A parcel, you said
for you and nobody else
wrapped in blue
tied with a pink ribbon

A piece of Heaven, you said
blue as your eyes
pink for tenderness
all of it for you

A deceptive moment
one to remember
just as the gift itself
a shrivelled heart dressed as a gift

My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
