It appears: It shines, by Jose Marti (1895)

It appears: it shines and when I have put
The verse image, I take the leaves
With fearful unction, as the believer
The rags he keeps whereupon he helps during Mass
Or if I write of love, so I imagine
That I raise the royal mantle of a princess.
Never such joy as the verse gave
To Iberian Eros or vigorous Diana!
The disdained soul, to see the world
Is seated on the arms of a star, it dresses them with garlands,
Of violets and heliotropes.

It appears: It shines, by Jose Marti (1895)
