Beautiful Poems by Francisco Matos Paoli

(from Peasant Thistle and Other Poems; Song of Madness)

The Profound Truth

My footprint has glittered
upon the depths of a distant
star.

My eyes have reached to
the blue horizon
where the singing dawn
dreams
of a bound love.

And within the brief circle
in which I live,
truth
is a star in orbit
traversing my wounded
body.

****

Variations in the Sea

Man:
something false which triumphs.
Poet:
something true
that weeps.

The Sea: a diamond
fluctuating
between the two.
