No image

o image bears
    identity with what it shares
one is one for certain
    not the other
though shape with shape
    as brother with brother
a shadow is in light made plain
    kept dark the truth may plead in vain
words are thoughts whose tongue is loose
    certainty we cannot choose
as grief's not love we know for sure
    and pain's the mate for creatures' care
