If All Persons Shadowed


where must you found
if all traces
are proud
to shadow you?

when you are found
at last, how must you doubt
the persons that found
you?

if all persons shadowed
you, how will i know
it were you
that they shadowed?

what person would that be
if all shadows of you
faded away at sunset
and never to a rainbow?

Poem of the Day

poet Algernon Charles Swinburne

I hid my heart in a nest of roses,
Out of the sun's way, hidden apart;
In a softer bed than the soft white snow's is,
Under the roses I hid my heart.
