Lucia! Lucia! Baila, y esta feliz!

by Lacey Smith

Dance, Lucia, for you are
far too full of this life
that cannot hold you!

Dance on, as if to tell the world
that you are only here in
instance, knowing well the colors
of your loving words I

watch you and think how
the world is far too small
to incapsulate such a
sparkling mass of flowers

they are blooming from your eyes, Lucia!
They are telling you to live on,
for all of this is too ordinary,
all of this is far too little
to hold you in.

-Lacey Smith
