Vestige


A silent, speeding, shooting star
Flashed 'cross the night sky's dark;
Then gone, except it etched within
My memory a mark.

That's all that's left of that brief burst,
The life that was a light,
That dazzled as it dashed across
The ebony of night.

When my swift flight is o'er and there's
No longer light nor place,
My soothing thought as shooting star:
I left somewhere a trace.

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
