Three poems: specter of the rocks; lady from lima & bell ringer of de copan - poetry

 

Phantom of the Rocks

[Huancayo, Peru]

Night falls deep

Upon the traveler!

Low, over the Andes

By Huancayo-;

They know a legend,

Not of this earth,

Where evil lurks

(Over Palla-Huarcuan!. . . )

"The Specter of the Rocks";

Should you pass thru there,

At night-be aware:

Expect not to return!. . .

Note: There is a rock in the form of an Indian Maiden; this is measured the evil apparition of the area. #657 5/13/05

Lady from Lima

[Dona Ana-1668 AD]

Dona Ana-but twenty-nine

Years old- Ruled Lima, Peru, with

Diamonds and gold. Haunted with pride and

Nobility? She dressed in splendor

For all to see! And pardoned a friar

Who was quite thirsty!

Bell Ringer: de Copan

In the cathedral de Copan the Bell Ringer was a boy- and his only job

(to my acquaintance was), was to the ring the bells? in the town-let of the cathedral.

It so happened that (one night

around dusk) , the lad, with mortal anguish, inspired madness-in the

delirium

of the moment: rang the bells like Holy Hell!!

(As I was witness to this all. )

He rang the bells, as if they had

wings-! As if this was his sermon-. As he dashed adjacent to the Tower

Walls-:

He rang the bells like Holy Hell!! He rang the bells with Royal

decree!! He swung on the ropes like a

monkey.

Echoes, echoes-passed through

the plaza-square; as sinful strollers, strolled

everywhere?.

As he rang the bells like Holy Hell!!

And now tell me: what could

I do? I pealed my hat off my head,

And kneeled on a pew.

Note: Occurrence happened as described in the poem, April, 2005 while visiting the archeological site nearby. #658 [May 13, 2005]
