COLVILLE SUITE FOR MIXED VOICES
My dear, I could divide my house, give you half of it
but what good would that do?
I would toss, sleepless, and so would you.
And we would neither
of us, strive as we might, discover all that she sees
nor the man behind her,
whose faces are hidden forever
by their creator.
