Caption To A Landscape


A sun setting on a wintry horizon,
A red sun,
Leaden clouds,
Pierced by bundles of lights,
And me, a peasant child,
Overwhelmed by night.
Our car was devouring the asphalt thread,
Climbing from our village to the city,
And I wish to hurl myself
Onto the moist verdure.
A sun setting on a wintry horizon,
A magic castle,
A gate of light
Opening on a time of legend,
The palm of a hand stained with henna,
A peacock ascending through the heavens,
Its rainbow tail spread out.

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
