I would have shared the news with you –
A stork upon its nest!
But you’d have made out that you knew
Or given thanks at best.

And then there’d have been nothing more
But silence from your end.
It’s not as if I want to bore
Or, much less, to offend.

And yet there was another time –
And not so long ago –
When you’d have found the news sublime
And said you didn’t know.

And so I told another one,
And then she told me what she’d done.
