Try to place a definition on love,
It disappears like water in the sand.
Your ideas fade, eclipsed by time,
All your words are scattered in the wind.

Is love, like a diamond, forever?
Found rough and whole then cut, polished, set.
The style and setting the choice of fashion.
Ever reduced until what is left?

So what about non-tarnishable gold?
Those plain twin gifted bands we choose,
To bind together or bonds that cut
Or over time wear thin and that thing lose.

What is a thing? Should we define it and
Label it to know its mass and motion?
When we could live in the experience?
Or is this too romantic a notion?

Fergus Carty
