The lull of evening [over mantaro valley] in english and spanish - poetry
Twilight, was now beginning. As for
the sun, it was down-down over
(then I noticed)
?the color of charcoal blended into earth
and sky-; ebbing connecting this was the
'Tis a time unto itself-between calm and
caution, silent forgetfulness and night; even
'Tis the flash of sunset, when light
is thin and narrow, and shadows
The peeping of birds, the crackle of trees,
children readying for sleep-; an complete
Notes by the author: "For me, nightfall seems to lure and lull the soul into a illusory confidence; yet it ashes an enticement, bait for the most part, that attracts most active effects into a glowing sensation; maybe God's way of deadening us for a moment, while the earth orbits about the sun, and the moon about the earth, all pulling army on us small human beings-perchance, it is desirable for a moments quietness on the soul. "
La Calma del Crepúsculo
El crepúsculo, ahora estaba comenzando.
(Luego yo noté)
El color del carbón vegetal mezclado entre tierra
misterio del crepúsculo (la partida del día, para
Junta un tiempo consigo mismo entre la calma y
a mente con sus grúas terrosas por un momento?
Junta el momento de la puesta de sol, cuando la luz
El cantar de los pajaritos, el crujido de los árboles,
Notas por el autor: "Para mi, el Crepúsculo parece atraer y calmar El alma dentro de una confidencia engañosa; todavía permanece una tentación, Cebo por así decirlo, que atrae mas cosas vivientes dentro de una sensación Encendida; talvez el camino de Dios entumeciéndonos por un momento, Mientras la tierra orbita alrededor del sol, y la luna alrededor de la tierra todas Las fuerzas jalando sobre nosotros pequeños humanos seres- posiblemente, Esto es necesario para momentos calmados sobre el alma".

"I heard what you said, Red. Yet, I have to disagree.
It's dark, it's cold, its' just six thirty,thoughts of sleep still dull my brain,As I cluster down, exclusive my coat,a rail user clone, just before you for a train.Insidious rain, just raining down,through weak light of creeping dawn,Paper sandwich bags and old auburn cups,blowing past, look so forlorn.
You cannot make a big cheese love you. All you can do is be a big cheese who can be loved.
Ballade of an Inca King
Ah! Leave the gold, wealth and landSays the Inca King?; In Spain, they leave the busy streets, For sail to Peruvian shores;The hum of the gold is sweet,It glows and glistens like the sun A mountain of gold, or the grave Awaits the human, Inca-god?!Spaniards sing their songs of victoryWhere breaks the green Peruvian sea; Who now, worships the Inca King (?) Guarded at the back of prisons doors-?They babble about his fair ringsThey watch the winds cross the shores? They count the days that idle by, For gold they worship and will die.Envoy.

Like a cat I slumber, wonderfully unencumbered, Through eighty per cent of my chosen span, Occasionally awoken, when balk is spoken, And I conceive a further cunning five year plan, Lately it was pensions, that were being mentioned, So I on loan from the French and Robespierre, Scrap all that went before, saved by tooth and claw, And let my all equal Citizens appear, Currently it is time, for me to be in my prime, For there is a different choice looming, I have to arrive sincere, for part of this appearance year, And comfort all and sundry that all is booming, Never mind austere quotas, Ive imported multitudes of voters, And told them which party let them stay, Though Ive rigged the postal vote, and defamed each of note, You never know what might crop up on the day.So to be on the safe side, I swallow all my pride, And allow my ancestors to hear my deified voice, And roll out the charade, put on the facade, And even make have faith in they have a choice, Next time about the crown, will be firmed underground, House of Lords and Lord Chancellor history, With the other Chancellor gone, I alone will soldier on, Yes, then there will only ever be me, Ill hold elections for you, as all dictators do, And fill positions with those that fat my palm, As for civil unrest, there is constantly house arrest, Or cloak-and-dagger custody for those that mean me harm.
