Brief and Fragile

“To all that is brief and fragile

superficial, unstable,

To all that lacks foundation

argument or principles,

To all that is light

fleeting, changing, finite

To smoke spirals

wand roses,

To sea foam

and mists of oblivion;

To all that is light in weight

for intinerants,

on this transient earth,

Somber, raving,

with transitory words

and vaporous bubbly wines

I toast

in breakable glasses.”

Maria Eugenia Baz Ferreira
