Zz 033 She Broke My Heart - Poem by Edward Wright Haile
She broke my heart as we passed evenly
along the dike, warm ponds. A pelt of vine
shook with a flock of carols heavenly,
so that she struck when I felt most divine,
elongated, and furthest from I die!
“A spirit wades in me; the current catches.
It is new love; new makes me happiest, ”
she answered softly. I saw a butterfly.
Its love is always new, always endures.
She laughed a friendly laugh and called me silly.
“Does it have love that lasts as long as yours?
Or half as fresh as mine? Do spare me, really.”
She was the one I loved, but as I heard her
“spare” I underwent the perfect murder.
