Poem: Woman in beauty

When the sun sets beneath its shades, 
Covered by mountains underneath its aims, 
When clouds aloof the awesome sky
Below the earth of arduous rise, 
Then I am a shooting star, 
A releasing arm in a lover's town, 
Where once, I saw her ravened black hair, 
Glimmering with life that only Cano Cristales* could live – poverty in Spirit,
An enemy to villainy,
Woman in beauty, a sage in learning and a Christ in holiness.

* Cano Christales is known as "the river that ran away from paradise" and it is located in northern Columbia
