Tale of the Brick Maker,
In the Andean mountains, surrounded by the
Mantaro Valley constituency of Peru,
village of San Jerónimo.
with bent-grass, and huge
And bearing towards the ocean's coast.
The old man had hands like a farmer's
was raised on labor and ceaseless;
baked them, from adjacent firewood, and found
each night into twilight.
And so Augusto lived, directing his
household fairly apart from the village,
goodly acres of land; he now was a
Happy and beneficial was he, an ox of a man
with leathered skin, and dark eyes;
Thus, at peace with God and man
I sat back in the Plaza de Arms, of Lima, Peru
listened to the tale of this old man,
told?these were days deserted and desolate
asleep, he tried to make a living,
in those days, with zilch in his pockets
He hadn't eaten for a few days, so the old
man said?, he was quite young back then;
elastic and descending were his legs,
in the city, now at trails end?
on some empty busy steps, silent.
Moistening his lips, looking up, he saw---
(eyes half dead)
All was ended now, the hope that
an indecisive longing.
"Sir, can I help you? Why are you so sad?"
spoke the hardly ten year old.
not calculating what to say;
She said once more, to the bewildered
Hundreds of feet walked by, where she
stood, he sat, "Miss, I can't pay the rent!"
Within an hour's time, the hardly girl
paying the rent a month in advance?!
But this is not where the story ends my friend,
it was certainly just the beginning.
Wondered, and asked:
(all numerous of us now enthralled with his tale);
"What sir is so funny?"
and married her.
she had been long dead, and he missed her.

Un Cuento del Ladrillero
De San Jerónimo de Tunán
En las montañas Andinas, dentro de la región
El anciano tenía manos como el de un agricultor
Y así, Augusto vivió, dirigiendo su
Feliz y saludable él era, como un buey era el hombre
Me senté de nuevo en la plaza de armas, de Lima, Perú
El no había comido durante unos días, eso el
Humedeciendo sus labios, mirando arriba, el vio
"¿Señor, puedo ayudarle? ¿Por qué esta usted tan triste?"
Cientos de pies andaban por ahí, donde ella
Pero esto no es donde termina la historia mi amigo,

Mother, I Dont Mind The Pain

Testimony to the Night [In English and Spanish]
In the quiet of the freezing night- In its deep northern skies, Dim are the lights, in its coldEvening frost?! Even the stars of the arctic Seem noiselessly stone frozen!Here, here is where you find Peace and the beast within-! Remote, no ears or wordsTo encumber the mind To embed the throat; Here, here is where you die?(for a moment).Here, the sky has eternal eyes Eyes with cosmic tides Tides that never rest: they warWith the Universe- Likened to a dark deep abyss; Endless and never resting?Here my eyes seek and search In countless hours, ebbing and Sweeping the heavens aboveNumbing, changeless- Are the cosmos, the heavens? Here resides a alien peace?Here, resides a bizarre peace With an army of stars to defeat Shinning, without a sound in the darkThe ebbing, eldritch dark; Time has no consequence here, Here, resides a strange, peace?Cold and oddly numb are my feet, As I look up, upon the many bridges One star bridging the next-as if,If Kings and Queens were Guarding them-the Hosts- O-Yes! A strange, bizarre peace?Ah! Praise, praise be to thee, to thee Flaming, baking firmaments-ye, Ye, prompt me not, of the wars I left,Of the foes, divine immortals?The enemies that never rest Ah! Praise, praise be to thee, to theeI hear music, harmony from afar (there) There are storms covert in a storehouse, For tomorrow-war beyond, beyondOrion's dust?perpetual dust; There, there the sun is dim to bleak.
Two Poems: Boyhood, and Old Age [with a note on style]
BoyhoodOh me! Thy glorious days have flown! I mealy noticed, now they're gone, How briefly accepted the flowers! Time does not stop youth's bells; It was like I was in a spell, And my face now shows the hours!Ah yes! My young at heart past days, Still lively in my fair age, When all was quick and new Now wrapped in movies and books, And contacts and ancestors were all I knew And love was shown by forthcoming looks!#741 6/26/05Old AgeThey stop by to see me now To find what's old and new, They peer into my-everything, And carp my views; They tell me what I must like, And that I be supposed to be grieved-These are my fragile associates That takes the strongest liberties?I mean to take the signal off; And put the phone exterior the door; In vain I speak to tell them why -I shan't live here anymore!#742 6/26/05A note on Style: some colonize ask, "What style of poetry to you like the best?" I can never key that question; it is open-ended to me. If I feel like flouting free from tradition as in the poem of: "Old Age," so be it; and if I feel established verse, a stricter ceremonial configuration must be used, as in "Boyhood," and can add abundantly to the poem, so it is.
For My Mother
I cannot bear to think of when you will be gone.I do not understand how I will get along.
Robert Burns Love Poem: A Red, Red Rose
Robert Burns, a poor man, an educated man, and a ladies' man, is ambassador of Scotland, much like whisky, haggis, bagpipes, and kilts. He lived a life shortened by aching heart disease, 1759-1796, but his life journey all through poverty, informal education, disappointed love, nationalism, and literary and fiscal sensation can be identified by all Scots and customary men the world over.
Farewell to Lester Graybill

The Crusader: A Explore for the Asset Confidential (an passage of an Epic Poem)
On by means of the darkness she searches the bones Seeking the hand of her love; Deep in the stillness, the maid searches on, Petitioning help from above. Onward she gropes by means of the flesh and the blood Of the warriors flawed and maimed; She carries no hope for the life of her love - For zero but his body she came.
