Where elves lived

Elves lived here, once,

where today the blanched shells lie

of snails

who have outlived their selves;

 

I would, if I could,

bring back elves

but I feel they would, too, like snails,

who have outlived their time,

lose themselves where once they lived.
 

 


(from A Sad Piper, 1994)
