Inward Nobility

I cannot accept the sacred and solemn

as private of the Popes and Bishops,

Kings and Judges.

On the various facets of daily life,

in the streets, avenues and alleys,

houses and hovels, by

hugging a friend long not seen,

returning an unexpected smile,

giving a hand to the child and

listening to an elderly,

stopping to hear the birds

and the buzzing of the bees,

admiring the beauty of the horizons

and the flowers of the gardens, and,

for the exasperation of all the demons,

making love, not war;

there is genuine a solemnity,

also grandeur and nobility, as

at the cathedrals, palaces and courts.

And so we go easily moving

the heavy and hard wheels of time,

towards uncertain and unknown days.
