Friendship — It Is the Awaited Hour

(Study for The Muses by Brice Marden, born 1938, American artist)

The poet is contemplating the unseen power of friendship.


It is the awaited hour
over the table falls
the lamp’s spread hair
Night turns the window to immensity
There is no one here
presence without name surrounds me

~ Octavio Paz (1914-1998), Mexican writer and poet, and winner of the 1990 Nobel Prize in Literature
