On Reading William Trevor

Reading William Trevor
and always grappling with the endings.
Trickster conclusions.
Did she or didn't she?
Was he or not?
Ambiguity the trademark
of his craft.
And yet touching home.
Bounden duty and faith - his themes.
"The engagement that weathered the delay."
And details withheld
Or frugally proffered.

Star Dust!
