INDIAN SONG (a poem by JOSÉ VERÓN GORMAZ)

Distant it is this peace that  lights the evening
among the still waters of the sleepy lake.

The light of the auguries
              floods the plains.

Birth of a vague desire
             to be like the grass in the meadows,
humble and deep-rooted
                to the dream of the land.

What a slow flow of time away!

On the banks of the pond the road stops
 To hear how they sing the wind and a goldfinch.

(From "The wind and the word")

José Verón Gormaz is an Aragonese poet and photographer, born in Calatayud, Zaragoza. "The wind and the word" is one of his best books of poetry.
