seated at a corner of life :
crystal oranges of windows.
Organ of sugarcane stalks.
of Mother Mary,
The little blue-eyed bell
runs out barefoot
to scamper over the countryside.
Clock of the Sun;
angelical donkey with its innocent sex;
handsome Sunday wind
bringing news from the hill ; \
Indian women with their vegetable-loads
bound to their foreheads.
The sky rolls up its eyes
when the little barefoot bell
comes scampering out of the church.
