To See Him Again

Poem By Gabriela Mistral

Never, never again?
Not on nights filled with quivering stars,
or during dawn's maiden brightness
or afternoons of sacrifice?

Or at the edge of a pale path
that encircles the farmlands,
or upon the rim of a trembling fountain,
whitened by a shimmering moon?

Or beneath the forest's
luxuriant, raveled tresses
where, calling his name,
I was overtaken by the night?
Not in the grotto that returns
the echo of my cry?

Oh no. To see him again --
it would not matter where --
in heaven's deadwater
or inside the boiling vortex,
under serene moons or in bloodless fright!

To be with him...
every springtime and winter,
united in one anguished knot
around his bloody neck!

At every springtime and winter we should feel the seasonal movement. This poem is very interesting and wonderfully this is written. Thank you very much for sharing this lovely work...10
Deep feelings nicely expressed with clarity of thought and mind. Very heartfelt with strong emotions.
To see him again - it would not matter where - in heaven's deadwater or inside the boiling vortex, under serene moons or in bloodless fright! Beautifully penned!
