A Cloak


This cloak, cast off
Now that you have had all the good of it,
Once was yours –
Now is mine.

Perhaps its rents and patches
Have grown too clear to you.
Yet they were always plain to me,
And I thought it a thing worth having.

What foolishness this –
You want it no longer,
Yet it cannot comfort me.
