Anemone and columbine
Where gloom has lain
Opened in gardens
Between love and disdain

Made somber by the sun
Our shadows meet
Until the sun
Is squandered by night

Gods of living water
Let down their hair
And now you must follow
A craving for shadows

Guillaume Apollinaire. “Clotilde” from Alcools, English translation copyright 1995 Donald Revell and reprinted by permission of Wesleyan University Press.
