On Mem’ry

keep thy cup
oh Mmnemosyne
for I will not sup
at your golden streams
for who I am
is that I find
as mem’ry sweet
within my mind
flesh and blood
may life beget
but ’tis just dust
should I forget
the first sunrise
my last caress
a lover’s eyes
the mindfulness
of mother’s care
or stranger’s scorn
in reminiscences
we’re born,
so keep thy waters
goddess dear
that I may keep
my memories near
