First Two Verses. Quoted verbatim. This is not a translation, it's from a very old book of poetry I found in the bookstore/cafe I frequent with a pricetag of $200.00 10 replies in and I'll give away the authors name in the Thread Title. SHAIEDIT: HAH! Can't google any of the lines either. I tried googling the poets name and only came up with one accurate link, and nothing on this poem. Googling the poets title gives fuck all too. Also, discussion on the poem itself.
