Don Juan

Don Juan

Under the lips and limbs, the embraces, faces,
Under the sharp circumference, the brightness,
Under the fence of shadows,
Is something I am seeking;
Under the faces a face,
Under the new an old or a not-yet-come-to;
Under the voices a peace.

Am I a darkness all your flames must light?
A mirror all your eyes must look into –
That dares not yet reflect the neutral sky,
The empty eye of the sky?



Poem Don Juan - A S J Tessimond
