Oh That Love Has Come at All!
By Mark Turbyfill
From “Wind-flowers”

I AM he who expects too much.
The high keen edge
Of dreams is not sharp
Enough; and the rose
Is not enough red.        5
I am tired with emptiness,
For love has not come swift enough.
But do thou weave, O heart,
A slender song:
Touched        10
That love has come at all!
