Poem: The Nardos in My Room


The Nardos in my room, bring forth their sweet perfume
As if to say Amor, of this you can be sure
More blooms we shall display with every passing day
Do not be sad

When our brief time is past, our fragrance will at last
Adorn the minds of those who ventured by and chose
What life was offering and with it everything
That could be had

My friend do not ignore the wonders at your door
Embrace them while you live and at the end you’ll give
Your own heartfelt applause because you’ll know there was
No more to add
