My Heart, Like Hyacinth
By Mark Turbyfill
OH, Grief is not so near to tears
As I!
Hurting me more than chord-pain—
The thought of you,
Quiet, alone,        5
Lovely as a watered reed,
Resting in the straightness
Of your cool white bed.
For I, storm-shattered and sick,
Lie here flushed, hard-breathing.        10
Oh, Grief is not so near to tears
As I!
