Sonnet To A Pilgrim Soul

Poem By Santiago Villafania

When the sun gilds the sky in the morning
And deep darkness makes a noble retreat
O hear the music in the air fleeting
For you can never recapture the beat

When the morning spreads her warm golden wings
And the sapphire sky is wordlessly deep
Look yonder and feast with your eyes the things
Which you seldom see in your dreamful sleep

Don’t you feel forlorn beloved pilgrim
If the world will mind your lowly a state
A time will come when their eyes will grow dim
And they too will fall on our self-same fate

An empty shell to decay into dust
When our days in the sun come into the past

That night I heard the swansong of the sea
the erolalias of nameless lovers
stealing a heaven and eternity

Midnight wind
bring her this breath of jasmine
return with her kiss
