In patches

The vault opens oneself at dawn.

The calyx of an Arctic alpine forget-me-not reopens

for an enchanting glory of the sunshiny dreams,

because of the eternally august poem,

that reads lenient and benignant.

Throughout the day:

there is up there a paradisiacal flight

of all halcyon seraphim,

singing through the stoicism, eudemonia

of many celestial dreamers.

Under the sun: a rhythm in wings of butterflies.

After evenfall: the paradise closes itself.

The springtide has gone to bed in aestival splendor.

In addition overnight a balmy sempiternity sleeps as well.

Here below a sensitive firefly flies,

above so ravishing earth.

In danger owing to the raveners of the night.

Indeed spared thanks to the sheen of Luther’s star.

The earth becomes a dazzling hereafter.

It remains not far from June sparks, the little fire.
