Eunice Odio (1919-1974)

Petite Symphony

little rattle

the moon lays down a pillow
for the greyhound to sleep

Great bell
tower of bells

the night steals a long robe
to dress itself in day


the sun leaves his handkerchief
and carries his little sword

little bell
tolling bell

the bird—full of song—
drinks the dawn.
