The Marriage

She sat on an iron bench
amongst yew trees,
a faceless man sat beside her;
further down the valley,
in a shallow river,
I looked for shiny
pebbles to give her;
she smiled, faceless faded,
but I sensed his presence
as a hurried shadow
across a cloudless sky;
saddened by the foretold
I gave the river back its false
glimmer; walked away, didn't
turn once to see what had
become of my bride.
