Oh Gawain,
drink your wine...
No one
understood why I was with her.

Yet
no one else
ever heard her,
(even you old friend),
speak
beyond the ugliness
of her state.

Above that sad,
black,
thorny realm,
through words she rose
a flower...
more beautiful
than any encountered
in our green and easy land.

And I became a man...
far more
than ever alone I could have been
without her.

See,
even now,

how her colors
fill my sky.

I think it's a debt that every man owes, who is more than simply an oversized boy. Well said, well said indeed.
