Separation by W.S. Merwin




Separation

Your absence has gone through me
Like thread through a needle.
Everything I do is stitched with its color.



William S. Merwin was born in New York City in 1927, the son of a Presbyterian minister. He has written more than 20 books of poetry, won numerous prestigious awards, and served as Chancellor of the Academy of American Poets. He currently resides in Hawaii.

Kris,

The poem is about missing someone. Instead of just saying "I miss you," Merwin says "Your absences goes through me like thread through a needle." He goes a step further and says that everything he does is stitched with the color. He is thinking of the person all of the time.

Have you noticed ed hardy Clothing that she is spending time with ed hardy sale one person in particular ed hardy and they seemed to come from ed hardy UK nowhere. When you ask how she ed hardy cheap knows them she becomes aloof and ed hardy Clothes disinterested. Is there someone's house ed hardy store she seems to be always going to? This edhardy.com could spell something is wrong with the christian audigier sale relationship. Is she taking trips, possibly day ed hardy dresses trips or small vacations without you? If ed hardy Polos she was doing this before you even ed hardy sandals got married or dated, then it may be okay, but if it is a recent ed hardy Jackets development then you may have problems.
