Barren Landscape by Luz Mary Giraldo

PAISAJE ÁRIDO Si hubiera en este paisaje una mujer estaría sola
si hubiera un hombre
sería un hombre solo.

Frente a un árbol
un pájaro entrena la soledad:
canto seco.

El hombre y la mujer solos
indiferentes al cielo y a los astros
oyen el canto de ese pájaro.
BARREN LANDSCAPE If there were a woman in this landscape she'd be alone
if there were a man
he'd be a man alone.

Facing a tree
a bird trains solitude:
a dry singing.

The man and the woman alone
indifferent to the sky and the stars
listen to the bird singing.

Err fault

Sitting on the Grass It was my fault.

It was entirely my fault.

Yes it was

it must have been

Been my fault It was.

I was in the wrong

.So wrong I was

Yes made a blunder

Made an error

An error thats all

. Is an error so bad

A fault is part of the human condition

We all do it

Do we not


I think not

The Night

The house creaks now it has an audience

The wind tries all the windows one by one

Something russles in the ceiling

To sleep to watcth

another crazy movie

The Bells

Edgar Allan Poe

Hear the mellow wedding bells,
Golden bells!
What a world of happiness their harmony foretells!
Through the balmy air of night
How they ring out their delight!
From the molten-golden notes,
And an in tune,
What a liquid ditty floats
