Tatul Sonentz Papazian - ELEGY

A long time ago
I whispered in her ear
“I shall always love you…”
She smiled and said nothing
It was spring
The trees covered their bare limbs
With a light green garment
Soon to turn dark and dense
In the summer heat
And catch fire
And fall
Just before winter…

A long long time later
She said to me
Half smiling
“I loved you too…”
It was no longer spring
The bare limbs of the trees
Along with our hearts and heads
Were covered with snow
While the winter wind
Froze her words
Into ice and
Frost…

A long long long time ago…
