STRELITZIA (Soul of soul) / Poem by Athanase Vnthev DE Thracy

Poem by Athanase Vnthev DE Thracy

 

STRELITZIA

Soul of soul

The graceful flowers
From the paradise to the window
From my big library
And the sharp kiss walking around
On the fields covered with frost.

A A voice
Where the pine forest is getting thicker.
The and and silence
And that halo of clarity tanned
Around your face bring!

Soul, you look like
To a heavenly drawing
Who shines in the fluid darkness
What the high curtains throw
Purple velvet.

The air is full of words
That no one understands.

Suddenly, shuddering of devotion,
You get up, come closer to me
And in a slow voice of water, whispers:

Stay still, my dear friend,
And tell me again
The legend of Enid and Geraint!
