    A Lover's Call....
    Where are you, my beloved? Are you in that little
    Paradise, watering the flowers who look upon you
    As infants look upon the breast of their mothers?
    Or are you in your chamber where the shrine of
    Virtue has been placed in your honor, and upon
    Which you offer my heart and soul as sacrifice?
    Or amongst the books, seeking human knowledge,
    While you are replete with heavenly wisdom?
    Oh companion of my soul, where are you? Are you
    Praying in the temple? Or calling Nature in the
    Field, haven of your dreams?
    Are you in the huts of the poor, consoling the
    Broken-hearted with the sweetness of your soul, and
    Filling their hands with your bounty?
    You are God's spirit everywhere;
    You are stronger than the ages.
    Do you have memory of the day we met, when the halo of
    You spirit surrounded us, and the Angels of Love
    Floated about, singing the praise of the soul's deed?
    Do you recollect our sitting in the shade of the
    Branches, sheltering ourselves from Humanity, as the ribs
    Protect the divine secret of the heart from injury?
    Remember you the trails and forest we walked, with hands
    Joined, and our heads leaning against each other, as if
    We were hiding ourselves within ourselves?
    Recall you the hour I bade you farewell,
    And the Maritime kiss you placed on my lips?
    That kiss taught me that joining of lips in Love
    Reveals heavenly secrets which the tongue cannot utter!
    That kiss was introduction to a great sigh,
    Like the Almighty's breath that turned earth into man.
    That sigh led my way into the spiritual world,
    Announcing the glory of my soul; and there
    It shall perpetuate until again we meet.
    I remember when you kissed me and kissed me,
    With tears coursing your cheeks, and you said,
    "Earthly bodies must often separate for earthly purpose,
    And must live apart impelled by worldly intent.
    "But the spirit remains joined safely in the hands of
    Love, until death arrives and takes joined souls to God.
    "Go, my beloved; Love has chosen you her delegate;
    Over her, for she is Beauty who offers to her follower
    The cup of the sweetness of life.
    As for my own empty arms, your love shall remain my
    Comforting groom; you memory, my Eternal wedding."
    Where are you now, my other self? Are you awake in
    The silence of the night? Let the clean breeze convey
    To you my heart's every beat and affection.
    Are you fondling my face in your memory? That image
    Is no longer my own, for Sorrow has dropped his
    Shadow on my happy countenance of the past.
    Sobs have withered my eyes which reflected your beauty
    And dried my lips which you sweetened with kisses.
    Where are you, my beloved? Do you hear my weeping
    From beyond the ocean? Do you understand my need?
    Do you know the greatness of my patience?
    Is there any spirit in the air capable of conveying
    To you the breath of this dying youth? Is there any
    Secret communication between angels that will carry to
    You my complaint?
    Where are you, my beautiful star? The obscurity of life
    Has cast me upon its bosom; sorrow has conquered me.
    Sail your smile into the air; it will reach and enliven me!
    Breathe your fragrance into the air; it will sustain me!
    Where are you, me beloved?
    Oh, how great is Love!
    And how little am I!
