The beloved is dead -- Who wants to lose the world -- When I open the Book -- It's not magic; it isn't a trick -- Sadness is there, too -- Isis kneels on the banks -- The poem is written on the body -- "What is life?" -- The things that die -- I read the Book for years -- I've known grief -- I want to go back -- How easy to give up hope -- There's nothing occult going on -- Can a river flow beside itself? -- When Sappho wrote -- How radiant and pale -- Salt on the roads melts -- The river has a single song -- The world comes into the poem -- Smart or dumb? Who cares? -- Those who wake -- If death, then grief, right? -- Suppose you could evoke -- Those dreams in which a phantom -- Everything dies. Nothing dies -- Silence -- The beloved has gone away -- Some of the poems are clear -- Tears and laughter -- Reading and writing poems -- Lighten up, lighten up -- Too many mysteries --
