Like a path in the pinewood.

In the light
of a beautiful
morning the
song of a fine
bird remembers
the youth and
the smile of
a feeling.

Une chanson pleine d'espoir.

La naturalité
des émotions
est comme une
lumière qui
remplit le matin
quand l'aube
de l'espoir
revient dans
le coeur.

Naturaleza.

El gorrión
suavemente canta
donando un
suspiro y un
ligero candor:
veo la tristeza
en el prado
mojado y en
el llanto del
sol.

Comme la douceur.

Dans un son
mystérieux je
sens le sourire
d'un matin
fugitif, le chant
du soleil et
la voix délicate
d'une feuille très
heureuse.

Las aguas del océano.

Como aguas
delicadas que
regresan tristemente
donde muere
la armonía
sueño un canto
momentáneo
y el sabor
de la poesía.
