Delicate eyelids fell to the ground,
And like her soul their radiance crushed
With all the sounds that, never heard,
Weighed heavily upon that soul.
 
She skipped the waterways in my shoes
With gloss black gleam: their laces unfurled
And like the swan that, glist’ning with oil,
Reflected its pain upon those shoes.
 
When returned her song was no more,
A simple verse, a rhyme-borrowed tune
The world at the end of the river made sure
Her voice was lost for evermore.
