A Cavalcade And A Prayer, by Edilson Afonso Ferreira

A Cavalcade And A Prayer

by Edilson Afonso Ferreira


Outdoors, on sunny days

and blue a sky,

I ride the wind to see all beauties that are spread

by all this earth.

Indoors, by night and before asleep,

I pray and kiss these walls that gently have sheltered

the rest and dreams of a man born in old a caste,

now in oblivion; they that live only by the sake of love,

having learned anything else,

nothing more.
