She gave me books
of fierce ache
and silence.

Written in the marrow
of newly mended
wait.

Ooh. I like the second look better than the first. Cryptically romantic.
  ~Carly

"Gather ye rosebuds while ye may,
   Old Time is still a-flying,
And this same flower that smiles to-day
   To-morrow will be dying."

Thanks. In all honesty, it's just a simple idea written into a simple poem. My girl likes to mail me books and write all over them, tuck pictures in them, etc. It's a wonderful thing, and also sets up a powerful ache, because of the long-distance thing.
