POETRY: "Separation" by W. S. Merwin, United States' Poet Laureate #17

Separation  by W. S. Merwin

Your absence has gone through me
Like thread through a needle.
Everything I do is stitched with its color.

What a beautiful poem!  i heard a short interview with the poet from his home on Maui on NPR.  The Library of Congress named Mr. Merwin as Poet Laureate on Thursday.  See the NY Times article here.
