T. Carmi

THAT NIGHT

She said that he was her sun,
that her light and her warmth and her goodness
came from him.

He said that she was his sun,
and that his light and his warmth and his goodness
came from her.

That night a moon rose;
it did not find its twin faces
in the sea.

THAT NIGHT

THAT NIGHT

She said that he was her sun,
that her light and her warmth and her goodness
came from him.

He said that she was his sun,
and that his light and his warmth and his goodness
came from her.

That night a moon rose;
it did not find its twin faces
in the sea.

THAT NIGHT

She said that he was her sun,
that her light and her warmth and her goodness
came from him.

He said that she was his sun,
and that his light and his warmth and his goodness
came from her.

That night a moon rose;
it did not find its twin faces
in the sea.
