A Moment

Today
In a moment
I heard you
But no
It was only 
                      Him
Speaking to me
Of tubes and trains
In that
Holiday voice
That calls
To mind
All that
Is good
And golden
All that
Is young
And sure

Today
In a moment
I heard you
But no
It was only
                     Me
Speaking to him
Of  cars and cranes
In that
Work-a-day voice
That calls
To mind
All that
Is tired
And worn
All that
Is frayed
And poor

Today
In a moment
I heard you
But no
It was only
                     Life
Speaking to ghosts
That go by
Your name
