Brutal to love,

more brutal to die.

And brutal beyond the reaches of justice

to die of love.



In the end, Dido

summoned her ladies in waiting

that they might see

the harsh destiny inscribed for her by the Fates.



She said, "Aeneas

came to me over the shimmering water;

I asked the Fates

to permit him to return my passion,

even for a short time. What difference

between that and a lifetime: in truth, in such moments,

they are the same, they are both eternity.



I was given a great gift

which I attempted to increase, to prolong.

Aeneas came to me over the water: the beginning

blinded me.



Now the Queen of Carthage

will accept suffering as she accepted favor:

to be noticed by the Fates

in some distinction after all.



Or should one say, to have honored hunger,

since the Fates go by that name also."





Anonymous submission.
