Galicia's Poets Corner

Another peom by Galician writer, Segundo Ramos, again translated from the original version in Spanish.



AN IDLE POET

By Segundo Ramos

An idle poet, here and there
His mind, with thougths abound
Like a blind man wanting to see
His world drible a sound
A cry of pain, that itself endures
Strife, violance, infidelity and death
The church tower, strikes midnight
A couple in the shadows
No a whisper, not a kiss should be lost
When soul, with soul agrees.

Still the orange moon, sits idle
Over the orchard, it slantes
Your heavy eyelids fasten
The poor poet, is busy writing
A poem as page,
May teach humanity
Love and friendship only
Once in a lifetime each.

The poet lights burning
With the winds of dawn
That blow softly
A new day, to persue
His childhood a headed dream
That his poems shall be read
Some may like them
Others may hate them
Anything is better
Than all out indifference
