BEAUTIFUL FRAIL THINGS


I have drunk joy today
I have mastered fate
I have known what it is
To conquer and create ...

Sometimes I ask myself
After days like this
"Have I no longer need
of his kiss?"

But when I see tired eyes
Quickened with light
As a lover's footstep
Sounds through the night ...

Or when I hear a little child
Laughing alone
Telling what it might be
When it is grown ...

Then I no longer doubt
That my love must be
Beautiful frail things
Have need of me!
