Echo
by Carol Ann Duffy (1955-)

I think I was searching for treasures or stones
in the clearest of pools
when your face ...

when your face,
like the moon in a well
where I might wish ...

might well wish
for the iced fire of your kiss;
only on water my lips, where your face ...

where your face was reflected, lovely,
not really there when I turned
to look behind at the emptying air ...

the emptying air.
