    If poets die young
    they bequeath two thirds of their life to the critics
    to graze and grow fat in
    visionary grass.

    If poets die in old age
    they live their own lives
    they write their own poems
    they are their own might-have-been.

    Young dead poets are prized comets.
    The critics queue with their empty wagons ready for hitching.

    Old living poets
    stay faithfully camouflaged in their own sky.
    It may even be forgotten they have been shining for so long.
    The reminder comes upon their falling
    extinguished into the earth.
    The sky is empty, the sun and moon have gone away,
    there are not enough street bulbs, glow-worms, fireflies to give light

    and for a time it seems there will be no more stars.
