Floatsam




 Floating downstream
I turn my head to watch
A wreath of flowers by my side -

On whom had it lain last?

  7. You, the adorned, said the wreath,
    And I, the adornment,
    Never together in life
    Now together.

    I turned my head in silence
    looked up at the sheen of sunlight
    filtering through the leaves of trees
    and sighed -
    I wish I had never plucked the flowers...
