Poetry corner

I first read this poem in 1996 when I was 18.  It’s been one of my favourites, if not my very favourite, ever since.  I’ve been thinking of it more and more lately.

 

Separation

by W. S. Merwin

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