Let Glorious Sunlight Fill The Day


Let glorious sunlight fill the day,
Let the ancient God appear.
To command all sadness away,
To banish night and fear.

Bathe the altars of the sun,
In warming golden rays.
Keeping darkness on the run,
And to brighten all our days.

Behold the deity in the sky,
Glorious splendor so divine.
To look at his majesty on high,
The humble human does go blind.

    One should never look directly at the sun as it may damage the eyes, but the metaphorical sun should always be sought after. Great poem Juan. (Report) Reply

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:

at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
