ORIENTAR

ORIENTAR

I want to go to Orientar 

where the meadows glow purple

with frankincense flowers.

I want to watch children

laughing and singing, 

collecting the gold that falls

from the sky. No one goes hungry

in Orientar, for the orchards

of myrrh bear fruit all the year.

The kings and the queens

of Orientar are kindly and wise

and they follow their stars.
