From our reading:

"History writes its tenses on the leaf
Lovingly swells its stems and in a trice
Fall ashes from forgotten walls in Crete.

But the grass grows, the everlasting leaf
Glints in the sun, and lovers walk again
Along another bank."

— A.J. Seymour, from "Variations on a Theme", p. 135 in the Collected Poems.
