LEAP WITH DISMAY

Under an unkempt hedge I drink alone in a quiet noon

Dazed by brevity of life, I reflect on bygone years again with increasing concern.

The southern winds blow in dusk too soon;

At the edge of silver clouds, I see floating eagles weave lines in the parting sun.

Her wrists were white with crystallized tears when we last bid goodbye

Words would not part from mouth; only smothered sighs.

The ways of emotions were both irrational and rowdy

Hands waving, brows would not cease to leap with dismay.
