Cascabel


I saw her from afar
So I gave her a wide berth.
Yet she still rose above her coils.

Then the music started
The incessant rattling,
And her rhythmic swaying.

That was enough for me,
I decided then and there,
To take the long way around.

She still swayed for a while,
From afar I saw her relax,
And the music died.

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
