Silver Fog
By Winifred Welles
HUSH—hush—hush! Steady as footsteps in the sand,
I hear two other oars crunch in their locks—
And look now, how my boat rocks
To feel another boat close by—
So close, so close, that if I reach my hand …        5
Who are you, who am I,
To halt each other with a cry?
Let us continue blurred and lonely,
Touched by each other’s trembling only.
It is so seldom two can be        10
Each for each a mystery.
