dcmarti1 Posted November 30, 2013 Share Posted November 30, 2013 At twenty-twoI beheld you nakedand everything else disappearedin that instant, save your diaphanousform, eternal, ever ageless;only I saw you lastat twenty-four.At twenty-threeI would dream of you atfifty: matchless gray hair changed you;nothing on your body betrayed your age;not one wrinkle nor extra pound;only I saw you lastat twenty-four.At twenty-fourI had not yet slept withanother man, much less with you.We never saw the hearth I imaginednor the blizzard I petitioned;only I saw you lastat twenty-four.At twenty-fiveI did finally sleepwith another man: there was nohearth nor blizzard, just your face in my mindand your name upon my lips whenI came; then I saw youas twenty-four.
