Nostalgia for the Present

At that precise moment he said to himself:

What would I not give for the joy

of being at your side in Iceland

in the great immobile day

and partake of now

as one partakes of music

or the taste of fruit.

At that precise moment

he was together with her in Iceland.

~ Jorge Luis Borges, Nostalgia for the Present
