One of my photos with poetry, almost every day.

"Dorigen’s Lament"


I remember reading in Chaucerof Dorigen,a woman who waits two yearsfor her husband to return from battle.

in this tale, she walks by the sea,doing nothingbut dreaming ofthe oneshe’s separated from.

mostly I rememberthat as she weeps and wailswhile the tide and ships roll in,she begins to fill the sea itself. 

Yes, I have not forgotten that in the endwe are not poets.


we are without wordsand our humanity.

just animals
first wailing—then drowning—

"Dorigen’s Lament"

I remember reading in Chaucer
of Dorigen,
a woman who waits two years
for her husband to return from battle.

in this tale, she walks by the sea,
doing nothing
but dreaming of
the one
she’s separated from.

mostly I remember
that as she weeps and wails
while the tide and ships roll in,
she begins to fill the sea itself.

Yes, I have not forgotten
that in the end
we are not poets.

we are without words
and our humanity.

just animals

first wailing
—then drowning—
