Book II. From the Heart
Flow on, serene, crystal waters • Into that cup from which you drink • There are soft loaves that come in secret • I knew pain and anger • When they wrap me in a shroud • They barked at me as I walked • My soul • Sea, with your depthless waters • Dig swiftly, dig • Just when I think you have fled • Take me to that crystal fountain • In the sky, clearest blue • I was robbed of my innocence • God placed a veil • "Tick-tock! Tick-tock!" the pendulum repeats • In late afternoon, when I go to pray • Endless May ... endless May • Pale moon • How peacefully they glisten • *Padron!...Padron! • Why, merciful God • There were joyful mornings

Why do you hate me?" • Black or white butterflies, I do not care • Though always pale, the moon changes • A mournful shadow, undefined and vague • Vertigo pulled his wild, blind fantasies • She carried one thought in her soul • When storm clouds gather • Rivers overflow when mountain streams • He longs for tranquility • When the North wind blows cold • In my small garden • Echoing slowly all the church bells • She feels regret • I care for a delicate plant • Birds in the air, moss on the rock • Thrown from its orbit, the human spirit tumbles • In the organ's echo or in the murmuring wind • They say the plants, streams, and birds do not speak • Every time she recalls that shame • She remembers the birds' warble • As long as the silver threads • The hearts of some people • Whenever I hear • I, in my bed of thistles- • Chased by a swift skylark • Should you arrive late to the feast of the gods • It was April, and the purple lilies • I love them and listen to them • Even though my body is freezing • You envy blondes • Those who are not in love think that • Human justice! I search for you • Incurably ill, she believed • My heart has one taut string • Those who cry are not alone • "This cup of fine gold • I am sure I was not born to hate • House after hour, day after day • Oh my Christ, when I forget you
