I visited the place where we last met.
Nothing was changed, the gardens were well tended,
the fountains sprayed their usual steady jet;
There was no sign that anything had ended
and nothing to instruct me to forget.
The thoughtless birds that shook out of the trees,
singing an ecstasy I could not share,
played cunning in my thoughts. Surely in these
pleasures there could not be a pain to bear
or any discord shake the level breeze.
It was because the place was just the same
that made your absence seem a savage force,
for under all the gentleness there came
an earthquake tremor: Fountain, birds and grass
were shaken by my thinking of your name.

I have one point left, so I give it to you.

It's worth five. I'll come back later and give you the other four.

This is pretty, but maybe it is also ironic to be doing a poem about absence during a sort of reunion/revisit.
