A Day in My Book

Just like that, the wind lost its breath; 
the natural vibrato of the ocean's waves became an elegy, 
and only the light from midnight stars pulsed 
as your heart slipped away.

In the century of quiet, that filled the empty moment, 
"They understood that wisdom comes of beggary."







from "The Seven Sages" by W.B. Yeats
