You do not see it, but

the sea, in parting,
swells with salty tears
when the tide
unclasps his hold
from the beach

the tree, in sorrow,
wastes away
sending summer leaves to
flutter to
earth’s touch

the sun, in longing,
races around the globe
while the moon desperately
flings out stars to lead him home

for Nature enacts love better
than I did,

I, who walked away
