“Poem of Eternity”


Oh, what do I hear?
That sweet whisper in the dark!
What can it be,
That mysterious voice caressing my ear?

A princess! Princess of the orient!
Moving tenderly sweet, as if in a dance from dreams.
Her fragrance like one single heavenly rose.
A gaze divine, illuminating her wonder!

Oh, thou mysterious being,
Let me share thy infinite splendor!
Please, let thy spell be a sweet one.
Redeem me from my misery not having you!

Oh thou being so splendorous,
There lies wisdom in beauty;
There is eternity!
