Diamonds and Rubies


humankind is nature's
selected alter ego
two legs, two hands
and a privileged brain
to walk and work his dream

the diamonds, the rubies,
the emeralds, the pearls
and every enchanting land
in the sea of space here
and beyond

humankind is nature
personified, the circulation
of energies, the love,
the growth, the searing
of offsprings, the building,
the demolitions;

he is nature
walking and talking
he is nature seeking
a more efficient creation
for all

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
