I heard today …

I heard today that (she) may be leaving.
That is all – no emotion; yet. Probably because
I know there must not be any.
I remember thinking, ‘I suppose it is for the best.’
Then, ‘No, neither for the best nor the worst.’ If she
leaves my world will lose its inspiration: but
I have not the right to judge for good or ill.

‘… though Time’s unflinching rigour
in mindless rote has ruled from sight the substance now …’
I live, and all the joys and sighs are Life.

Weave out, dark Destiny, thy web before mine eyes;
For what now seems too sad may be the best surprise.
