Little Symphony

Small bell
bell so little

The moon lays down a pillow
for the greyhound to sleep

Great bell
tower of bells

the night steals a long robe
to dress itself in day

violin
violincello,

the sun leaves his handkerchief
and carries his little spear

little bell
tolling bell,

the bird-full of song-
drinks the dawn.

Eunice Odio
Translation by Keith Ekiss and Sonia P. Ticas
