The World We HAVE To Have by May Sarton


In the evening we came back
Into our yellow room,
For a moment taken aback
To find the light left on,
Falling on silent flowers,
Table, book, empty chair,
while we had gone elsewhere
for hours.
When we came home together,
We found the inside weather,
All of our love unended,
And we give, in a look
at yellow walls and open book.
The deepest world we share
and don't talk about
But have to have, was there,
And by that light found out.
