Visit Jacqui's place for Poetry Wednesday
This little poem appealed to me this week. My friend leaves town tomorrow to go look at condos in Minnesota. His house here is sold, it's now fait accompli - he will soon move to regions northerly. This is a little sad, I know. But it says just how I feel.
Heart, we will forget him
by Emily Dickenson
Heart, we will forget him,
You and I, tonight!
You must forget the warmth he gave,
I will forget the light.
When you have done pray tell me,
Then I, my thoughts, will dim.
Haste! ‘lest while you’re lagging
I may remember him!
