Fading of the Light - Albert A. Anderson

Part 1 (1975-1977)

For diotima

As the tap root of a thriving oak

Thrusts deep into Gaia’s hidden source,

Diotima’s tongue probes language beyond words.

Accents from delicate lips caress,

Clothing naked facts in robes of myth.

Showing what she could not tell,

Doing what she could not say,

Diotima taught me the truth of love.

The trout

Allegro vivace

Play the feathered fly just off the surface

using wind and ripple to tease the hidden eye.

Touch the surface as Hermes

brings a god’s message.

Lose neither speed nor grace as the line floats

and the current catches.

The secret is in the wrist.

It must train with the dragonfly,

learning the ancient art.

Taste April sunlight.

Hear spawn on the rock.

Smell nymphs in water.


Consider the surface as entrance

where nothing is revealed.

Proceed slowly,

ignoring pulse and throbbing chest.

Breathing should be learned from the tides.

A layer of nymphs covers the pool

where the quarry hides in shadows.

She dwells in the middle realm

binding time to eternity;

bearing human sacrifices to the gods

And divine commands to mortals.

Here you catch the first glimpse.

Ignore the pangs;

deny the impulse to take her at once,
