The Last Appearance


At dawn, the night reveals the curtain

A great entertainment starts

- The ocean shows its beauty and vastness


The wind plays passionately

On the strings of the waves

Birds soar over the foaming water

And the whales chant love songs


Huge humpback whales

With the grace of the athletes

Make daring somersaults

On the white background of the Arctic glaciers


This spectacle has been going on for centuries

And soon it will be held for the last time

The actors will leave for ever

 - There will be no encores and no bows


The whale skeletons will be silent

In the spacious museum halls

Under the watchful gaze of the dead birds




When I think of Argentina

- a beautiful girl in a silver dress,

girded with a sash from heaven and snow,

which she fastens with a sun-shaped brooch,

emerges from my imagination.


She is tall and slender

- she touches the ice of Patagonia

with her feet in the white pumps

 and she loosens her long hair

 in the thicket of the tropical jungle.


In her gaze the cloudless sky over the Andes

and the vastness of the ocean is reflected.

Her heart beats to the rhythm of the tango,

danced by everyone torn by passion

in the beautiful capital city - Buenos Aires.


She has the joy of a carefree child,

who likes to play with the ball all day?

but when nostalgia hits her,

she plays love songs on a green guitar

borrowed from Graciela Yraizoz




Empty chair by the Christmas table.

Thousands of glittering flames

Dance on colorful ornaments.

The whole world trembles, it slowly rocks.

Green spruce smells like the woods.


Like Ariadne, I weave

Angel hair into memories and silence.

I return to happy hours,

To events that are now but dreams.

I listen to every murmur, rustle.

It seems, that at last I will hear

Familiar footsteps on the other side of the door
