Poem 10 by JOSE GARCIA VILLA

sun1First, a poem must be magical,

Then musical as a sea gull.

It must be a brightness moving

And hold secret a bird’s flowering.

It must be slender as a bell,

And it must hold fire as well.

It mut have the wisdom of bows

And it must kneel as a rose.

It must be able to hear

The luminance of dove and deer.

It must be able to hide

What it seeks like a bride.

And over all, I would like to hover

God, smiling from the poem’s cover.
