The Well


A sorrowful cloud
Grows madly in time
Finally falls into a well


On a full moon night
A string of bubbles rises up
The water
Black as ink
Along with the pains overflow

A man
With a tender gaze
Scoops her out of the well
And fills it with gravel

As the church bell tolls
A pink flower bursts into bloom
And a green vine creeps around the well

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
