Las Golondrinas by Joseph Najera

Las Golondrinas

 

Winter comes upon us with a cold and lonely wind.

It brings with a stab the lilac shadows night.

The lowly mist spreads empty chills across the clear and purple night.

Winter comes upon us with the howling of the wind.

 

Winter comes upon us with the howling of the wind,

Like dry leaves that rattle the dusty screen,

And scrape across the asphalt empty lanes.

Winter comes upon us with the carriage of the wind.

 

Winter comes upon us with the carriage of the wind.

It leaves us empty of the swallows chirping in the eaves

And brings us snuggling to the red coals crackling,

Winter dances on a dark and lonely road.

 

Winter dances on a dark and lonely road.

Bird nests dangle in a broken spider web.

I hear them humming in the solace of their work.

Winter dances on a dark and lonely road.

 

Winter dances on a dark and lonely road,

Sparkles light beams that land upon the street,

Spreads white vapours from each and every breath.

Winter rains upon a dark and lonely road.

 

Winter rains upon a dark and lonely road,

Washes clean the dust upon my leathery skin,

Brings the dark and yearnings for the coming of the day.

Winter comes with a cold and lonely wind.

About jedwardnajera

I am a Poet. I live the life of a poet. I am an artist, a member of Gallery 9 in Los Altos, California. I published a novel Nena the Fairy and the Iron Rose, available through Amazon Books. I spent over thirty five years in a classroom. My father kept a living record of his lifetime as he lived through the Twentieth Century. He was born in 1908 and almost lived long enough to see us enter the new millennium. He was a mechanical engineer and had a wonderful love of history and science. He entrusted to me nearly 400 pages that he wrote through the years. He wrote in Spanish and I have spent six months translating these pages into English. Now I am in the process of editing, rewriting, and revising them. I am trying to post a new entry or chapter each Friday. Check in on us at least once a week for the latest post.
