“Tú No Eres, Sol…” de Saulo Torón (1885-1974) #PoesíaCanaria

The Last Island


Tú No Eres, Sol

Tú no eres, sol, lo que eres;
ya descubrí tu verdad.
No eres el padre del mundo,
ni es cierta tu ancianidad.

Tú eres, como yo, un muchacho,
con menos años quizá…
¡Esta mañana te he visto
salir desnudo del mar!

Saulo Torón

We Dream—it Is Good We Are Dreaming – Poem by Emily Dickinson

The Last Island

 We dream—it is good we are dreaming—
It would hurt us—were we awake—
But since it is playing—kill us,
And we are playing—shriek—What harm? Men die—externally—
It is a truth—of Blood—
But we—are dying in Drama—
And Drama—is never dead—Cautious—We jar each other—
And either—open the eyes—
Lest the Phantasm—prove the Mistake—
And the livid SurpriseCool us to Shafts of Granite—
With just an Age—and Name—
And perhaps a phrase in Egyptian—
It’s prudenter—to dream—

Emily Dickinson

Let Peace Prevail In This World……. – Poem by Ravi Sathasivam

Let Peace Prevail In This World……. – Poem by Ravi Sathasivam






When you look for peace
then the peace lies within you
When you search for peace
then it is not hard to find
When you want to keep peace alive
then you allow white doves to fly over you
When you make peace with others
then the whole world live in your heart
When you let peace be in the world
then you live in wonderful world
When you allow peace flow around the world
then your hateness will go and love will flow
When you open the door for peace
then peace welcome to your lives.
Let the peace prevail in our wonderful world

‘The Death of Autumn’ by Edna St. Vincent Millay

‘The Death of Autumn’ by Edna St. Vincent Millay





When reeds are dead and a straw to thatch the marshes,

And feathered pampas-grass rides into the wind

Like agèd warriors westward, tragic, thinned

Of half their tribe, and over the flattened rushes,

Stripped of its secret, open, stark and bleak,

Blackens afar the half-forgotten creek–

Then leans on me the weight of the year, and crushes

My heart. I know that Beauty must ail and die,

And will be born again–but ah, to see

Beauty stiffened, staring up at the sky!

Oh, Autumn! Autumn!–What is the Spring to me?


Edna St. Vincent Millay

Edna St. Vincent Millay (February 22, 1892 – October 19, 1950) was an American lyrical poet and playwright. She received the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry in 1923.

“Meeting at Night” by Robert Browning

“Meeting at Night” by Robert Browning



Meeting at Night




The grey sea and the long black land;

And the yellow half-moon large and low;

And the startled little waves that leap

In fiery ringlets from their sleep,

As I gain the cove with pushing prow,

And quench its speed i’ the slushy sand.



Then a mile of warm sea-scented beach;

Three fields to cross till a farm appears;

A tap at the pane, the quick sharp scratch

And blue spurt of a lighted match,

And a voice less loud, thro’ its joys and fears,

Than the two hearts beating each to each!

“The Magi” by William Butler Yeats


Now as at all times I can see in the mind’s eye,
In their stiff, painted clothes, the pale unsatisfied ones
Appear and disappear in the blue depth of the sky
With all their ancient faces like rain-beaten stones,
And all their helms of silver hovering side by side,
And all their eyes still fixed, hoping to find once more,
Being by Calvary’s turbulence unsatisfied,
The uncontrollable mystery on the bestial floor.

William Butler Yeats (from Responsibilities and Other Poems, 1916)
