I did not know it would be hidden

beyond the fall you spoke of.

I did not know the water would be there

alone and dressed in the shimmer

of the sweat of the forestís resin.

 

I did not know there would be a tree

so eccentric that its branches were arms

to dangle from and cradle our laughter.

I did not know the golden dive would

flash to silver to the amber quiet glide

you would make of its entire length.

 

I did not know the easy silence

as the eye drew upon the page

the long moment of an hour there.

I did not know it would come

to this:the splintering of water,

words, that ecstasy if made of.

 

And I am glad you didnít tell me.
