Longing (Deseo) - Poem by Manuel Gutierrez Najera

See'est thou the ivy, how it clings and catches
In every crack of the dark altar here?
As round the marble stone it wreathes its branches
I would embrace thy heart, my treasure dear.

See how the moonbeam penetrates the water
Tranquil and still, nor doth its peace offend!
As the lagoon the quiet moonbeam enters
Into thy soul's depths fain would I descend.
