If All Persons Shadowed


where must you found
if all traces
are proud
to shadow you?

when you are found
at last, how must you doubt
the persons that found
you?

if all persons shadowed
you, how will i know
it were you
that they shadowed?

what person would that be
if all shadows of you
faded away at sunset
and never to a rainbow?

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
