PrayerSweet god,Sweet boy,For my loveAllow me but this:That I may restIn your sorrowsAnd your joys.That I may dreamYour tales,Live your worlds.Why can't IAbandon these three walls of constrictionAnd get to a placeWhere your boundless artIs the only reality?
A FarewellThe brothers and sistersOf the skyCall me to stay here,In the poetry-filledGrey air of dawn.A bird of seaPasses byReminding meOf the almost forgottenNature of islandOf this place.This placeI do not wish to abandon.For as I go backTo the living deadHere I leaveMy heart and my mind.And only this pieceOf my soulI bring with me,As a morning danceOf sea and deathFares me well.
A PoetLet me haveThe mind of a man.Let the leaves of grassSing to me the songsOf all poets.Let the sky above meTell me of the depthOf life.Let this cold windNot harm meBut embrace meAnd give me the sight.Let me loveAll these people,Life swarming,So beautiful.EraseThe venom of hate from my heartAnd let meBe a Poet.
Cathedral of NatureCathedral of natureAmidst the dead.Green tentsShieldingWeeping the deeds of man.Circle of green fireProtecting.No man shall enter,Defile this sacred place."Step back,daughter of man!"The magnificence of the templeCommands me.And so I obeyAnd watch at a distanceAnd prayFor thee,Holy mother,Not yet by everyoneForgotten.
