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,
