39 Narcissus To Douglas Narcissus has four eyes, Two penes. He always looks at his twin-boy, When in the mirror of the river, Narcissus always Stays alone. At eyes through water looks Narcissus, Through tears -- At always silent lips, When with the flowing tears of river, He cannot stay, He cannot leave. He who reflects one's every shadow Is just a shadow in the flow. With nothing lost, With nothing added, Narcissus always Leaves alone.
