Lo eterno / Fernando Paz Castillo

The Eternal

A leaf in the night,
neighboring a pale star,
almost became a star itself
and at dawn
it became all light with sun and rain.
Leaf, I feel the absent star in you
in the blaze of your water droplets.

La voz de los cuatro vientos (1931)

{ Fernando Paz Castillo, Poesía, Caracas: Biblioteca Ayacucho, 1986 }
