The World and I ~ Laura Riding

This is not exactly what I mean

Anymore than the sun is the sun.

But how to mean more closely

If the sun shines but approximately?

What a world of awkwardness!

What hostile implements of sense!

Perhaps this is as close a meaning

As perhaps becomes such knowing.

Else I think the world and I

Must live together as strangers and die-

A sour love, each doubtful whether

Was ever a thing to love the other.

No, better for both to be nearly sure

Each of each – exactly where

Exactly I and exactly the world

Fail to meet by a moment, and a word.
