The Bay

The Bay

A Poem by Ivan Mauricio Urrego


The Bay
The ruby dusk falls,
and the horned moon sleeps no more 
and there I stand upon the ocean shore,
pondering and wondering before you
and amid this infinite bane of silence
the foamy waves of the seas sing your name
and the sighs of the wind whisper it.
I have so many dreams within dreams
Many as the golden sands next to the seas,
And the crystals of my soul brim
like the first stars that shimmer in the night,
and the heavy drops of this storm
dissolve in that deep ocean of melancholy.
If throw this bud to the sea
Will the tides be compassionate
and carry it toward your dwelling?  
Will I ever be the sire
of your dreams and your desires? 
Oh! You my fair siren
still in my eyes a maiden,
dark-haired as the night
that embraces the eventide of my dreary days.
Here I find myself on the shining bay,
On the edge that divides our entwined fates
Waiting and longing in each growing day
for the graze of that livid skin,
light  as the lustrous moon kindle beam
That seems smooth as the rose-red fingers of dawn
and to kiss those lips of heart color of ardent blaze
like the bloomy day of the sunrise in the seas
that girds in the middle of the earth.

Ahhh...any woman would melt at having her praises sang in such a way. This is beautiful. Thanks you for sharing this with us. I'm looking forward to reading more of your work now.

Just a little the third stanza...I think you meant to say "Will I ever be THE sire of your dreams and desires"

Seriously though, I love this. Very romantic.
