Leaving


He left
gradually
like water
evaporating
after the rains

that surrounded him
just slipped away

waters became
muddier
crowded with
predators
snarling snapping
at the
retreating edge

then he was gone

leaving
nothing
but dust.

poet George Gordon Byron

It is the hour when from the boughs
The nightingale's high note is heard;
It is the hour -- when lover's vows
Seem sweet in every whisper'd word;
And gentle winds and waters near,
