Once upon a time in a little place
One was the other's very bane
Merely because of a simple efface
Sun, moon, stars, rain

No memory of each other can you ever think
A very memory is all but a shun
No memory of those hearts sink
Moon, stars, rain, sun

Don't remember, don't comprehend
Don't understand too soon
Remembering that though death is not the end
Stars, rain, sun, moon

One more chance to speak out to each other
They cast a look at each other from afar
Their lips moving, a misty smother
Rain, sun, moon, stars

But no acknowledgement is displayed
She is not his lover, he not her swain
Because words are not ever portrayed
Sun, moon, stars, rain







(Author's Message: I'm sure you're very confused. What's going on? Well, basically, two lovers don't talk to each other so long, they forget each other exist. The "sun, moon, stars, rain" part show time passage. Then, in the last two stanzas, it says that they might remember--they might talk to each other once again and remember their love--but they abolish it by not speaking, a "misty smother". A "swain" is a woman's lover, a man that loves a particular woman. This poem is partially {sort of, not really} inspired by ee cumming's "anyone lived in a pretty how town" {<---- exactly how it looks like})
