    Before the gods manage
    to put sleep in my eyes.

    The most conspicuous place
    in the tavern is the darkest one.

    Wine mixed rightly and
    drunk freely tonight.

    Abundance of purple clothes
    and sweet green eyes all around

    but I want hers, blue
    and kind of sad and languid.

    She is the nuance and music
    of her own radiance, ready,

    and a splendid stallion
    gallops deep in her dreams.

    She is a child in summer
    playing in the country sunlight.

    She has woven red and violet
    wreaths into her hair. It is late.

    And I the man who waits,
    weaving my time into memories.

    Dawn breaks, crowds of doves
    take to the air, the wine is all gone.

    The darkest table in the tavern
    is still empty and cold.

    I waited all night, O lady.
    Why didn’t you come?
