Petals that Weep in their Eyes, Pomona Youth

Petals that Weep in their Eyes, Pomona

The pulchritude of Pomona youth

as a tribute to the goddess of fruit

carries forward as such beauty and truth

the knowledge that somehow against the force

that evil corruption knows how to mount

deceiving the naïve and innocent

such as the elders who say give up!

This is what history has condemned us to.

Yet in their conscience, a voice does not stop.

It wearies them it mocks them and it hurts,

And against the indifference of adults,

their sweet and whole emotions seek outlets:

The flower of youth blooms eternal, wise,

 Such as the petals that weep from their eyes.
