When Love Is Gone
By Louise Jones
I AM as a field of grass
Over which the hot winds pass—
  I am bowed.
As an organ left alone—
Organist and songs long gone—        5
  I am dumb.
I am as a goblet dried,
Wine-stained crystal rim and side:
  I am drained.
As the ashes dead and gray        10
When the fire has burned away,
  I am cold.
