Leibchen ~ poem

This is it, mein leibchen.
This is the slow torture
of mornings without him.
This is the pale gleam of the sun
in frost-gripped skies:
the promise of what was once;
the promise of never-returning.

Listen to the crows, mein leibchen.
They know the land, know its sorrows,
know the dark contours of its past.
