melancholy

The sight yesterday of classmate Allan
Being taken swimming by his old man
Had me behind the classroom weeping,
As I saw myself and my old man
That I never saw also go swimming;

Back home I asked mother if she thought
My old man would have taken me swimming
Were he to be still living,

[Hata Bildir]
