Maurice Maeterlinck

Maurice Maeterlinck

Maurice Maeterlinck

Here in glad-darkness...
Maeterlinck is distracted.
Moonlit garden: a slender dancing nymph
in see-through muslin... astonishing leaps.
Seagull shriek.  The dancer vanishes.
Head shake, Maeterlinck smiles
at distant granite walls...
his after-life monastery,
Here in glad-darkness:
red poppy, scent of roses,
shadows of joy, shadows of sorrow....
