I Found Her

NANCY

 

find  (fahynd) v. to come upon by chance

I found her

 

I carried no thought of her

No dream

From restful sleeps

Nothing in me searched

The nighttime paths I’d walked in other darknesses

 

I found her

 

The truth stops me at my work

Other

Inopportune times

The wonder of it

The miracle

 

And

She teases me

A gentle

Asking

That is no question

Tell me

Vincent

Did you say to Father

Look what I found in the Park

Can I keep her

 

We laugh

 

We kiss

 

We keep

One another
