SLEEP (TEDDY)

All the freedom of the sun,

 Of worlds untouchable by winds

Howling over oceans,

 Lie

 

With you in the dark,

In the silence of the sky,

The whirling night

Bursting in the islands,

 

Washing in the sea;

Flowers hurled against the bay,

Bougainvillea nursing

On the wall,

 

All the rages on the breeze,

Burning on the endless wave,

Flaming in the frangipanes,

Fall,

 

Break around you in the grave,

Drench you in the squall,

In the summer’s width and breadth

That reverse the desert of your death.
