The Bardís Last Tale

by Ken Sanes

I am a singer of stories,
And in my youth I learned
That love is bittersweet
When it is unreturned.

And I learned something later
That I also like to sing:
The return gives life meaning
And reduces deathís sting.

But it was in age that I realized,
When love and love meet,
They are part of one love,
And then love is complete.

1859 oil painting by Francesco Hayez,
titled "The Kiss", according to Wikimedia.
