Eurydice

She was already loosened like long hair,
poured out like fallen rain,
shared like a limitless supply.

She was already root.

And when, abruptly,
the god put out his hand to stop her, saying,
with sorrow in his voice: He has turned around —,
she could not understand, and softly answered

Who?

 - Rainer Marie Rilke (Orpheus. Eurydice. Hermes)
