My heart of silk

is filled with lights,

with lost bells,

with lilies and bees.

I will go very far,

farther than those hills,

farther than the seas,

close to the stars,

To beg Christ the Lord

to give back the soul I had,

of old, when I was a child,

ripened with legends,

with a feathered cap,

and a wooden sword.

Poetry Ptuesday: Heart of Silk by Federico Garcia Lorca
