Lines on Wood

As I listened to that old and beautiful song
its fine words were baptised by the flames
igniting the bonfire of this poem

An incandescent lighthouse
lit up a solitary boat
guiding it
through the tropics
to the safe haven
of the Caribbean

But I listened to that song
and in the smoke of the bonfire
its poetry

I really love this peom! Im using it for a Spanish class in which I have to memorize, recite, and write a paper on the meaning of a spanish poem. This peom is absolutly perfect for my project, not to mention beautiful. Props to the author of the original and both translated versions. Absolutly beautiful.
