Doctora Lakra,
although you welcome wisdom,
you perceive your end.

I Peered Into the Window

Puebla window
 

I peered into the window,
And there what did I see?
Dreamy shapes made manifest,
Staring back at me!

I could not understand it,
I thought I’d lost my mind,
The shapes were there before me—
Before me, not behind!

I glanced away so quickly,
I nearly snapped my neck;
I stilled my heart a moment—
And then I ran like heck!

Soothe my rambling mind
as I walk in solitude
through cathedral square.

Ghosts

Seeking solitude,
ghosts of past inhabitants
ramble through the halls.

still my rambling heart.

Rambling days over,
old man sits in solitude
with an easy grace.
