(1888-1921 / Mexico)

Y Pensar Que Pudimos...

Y pensar que extraviamos
La senda milagrosa
En que se hubiera abierto
Nuestra ilusión, como una perenne rosa…

Y pensar que pudimos
Enlazar nuestras manos
Y apurar en un beso
La comunión de fértiles veranos…

Y pensar que pudimos
En una onda secreta
De embriaguez, deslizarnos,
Valsando un vals sin fin, por el planeta…

Y pensar que pudimos,
Al rendir la jornada,
Desde la sosegada
Sombra de tu portal y en una suave
Conjunción de existencias,
Ver las cintilaciones del zodíaco
Sobre la sombra de nuestras conciencias…

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.
