Black Flowers

Listen:

under the ruins of my passions,

and at the bottom of this soul

that you no longer rejoice,

among dust of dreams and illusions

lie my black flowers numb.

Guard therefore this sad, feeble bunch,

which I offer thee of those somber flowers;

keep it, fear nothing,

it is a plunder of the garden

of my deep melancholies.

 

(Excerpt from the poem

Flores Negras” by Julio Flórez)
