To a friend who left

October 8, 2015

We did not mean to part
On the road, at the fork,
We took our leave
Not farewell,
For either road we could see
And hail to each as we traveled
On the road to the sea
The fog came down
And through the dark
Our voices grew faint
Lanterns dimmed
Faint cry of gulls
And rush of waves
Were soon all we had
On the endless way…
– and at the bend in the road
When we met again
We knew not each other
Time and tides had washed us away
