For Emily a poem by Daigneault

For Emily
a poem by Daigneault

I read the words
Your quiet heart
And spent a rainy day

From my sickbed
An easy walk
That land so far away

The time not mine
And eyes not yours
But time, and vision still

A glimpse of truth
These simple words
The world could drink its fill

And you alone
Said, “burn them all”
Our eyes were not to see

But saved they were
So saved were we
Who to pay this fee
