Soneto de Invierno/ Winter Sonnet

Jm Benavidez Estoque

Unto the blue skies t’was so lovely and more temperate
… bounded by fields of green whose a vast whitening!
Here was my heart so cold unchaste,
… yearning for the passion of deep fervor blaze.

Leaves ever falling, rustling… weeping unto the misty trees
… whose branches of her, Oh, those sweet embraces she reminds!
And… for this December, whose skies are gold,
… Painful and weeping was my heart and soul!

And from whence this Christmas lies?
… but to the stories untold.
… of the birth of the one… the delight of Heavens!
… Whose warmth affections that bleeds, host.

For so long as my heart would dictate,
‘Shall I never ever forget thee… !

*Note: The Painting (above) that is used for this Poetry is an art created by Juan Luna, A Filipino Painter during the Spanish Era in the Philippines
