The Listener

Your face lies secret in my memory,
the image parchment thin now.
You supplied words for my silences,
incandescent pearls in a long tunnel;

The night of the howling babies,
mothers weeping in their pillows.

You walked beside me as I described
my baby’s look, her dark shining eyes;

you whispered, ‘Eternity’.
