So it is we need a darkness to capture
and take us for a while from the blinding

light of lives lived in the glare

which takes the depth from things.

Morning is a lure: Will you come?

and at once Eurydice followed him

through the gloom, but the thought

donít leave me now was in the transforming

dark and he turned to, and therefore from,

the shadow that followed after and banished

the dark music of her breath forever.

But still Persephone comes when light leaves

the forests and she can walk in shade alone

a while and mingle darkness with green light

and bring life to the shadows.
