Poetry Tuesday: Can It Be True That One Lives On Earth?

Some time ago I put in a poem written by an Egyptian Pharaoh. This time it’s the pre-Columbian King Nezahualcoyotl of Texcoco, who is actually better known for his writing.

Can it be true that one lives on earth?

Not forever on earth; only a little while here.

Be it jade, it shatters.

Be it gold, it breaks.

Be it a quetzal feather, it tears apart.

Not forever on earth; only a little while here.

;o)
