Sylvia Plath - Never Try To Trick Me With A Kiss

Never try to trick me with a kiss
Pretending that the birds are here to stay;
The dying man will scoff and scorn at this.

A stone can masquerade where no heart is
And virgins rise where lustful Venus lay:
Never try to trick me with a kiss.

Our noble doctor claims the pain is his,
While stricken patients let him have his say;
The dying man will scoff and scorn at this.

Each virile bachelor dreads paralysis,
The old maid in the gable cries all day:
Never try to trick me with a kiss.

The suave eternal serpents promise bliss
To mortal children longing to be gay;
The dying man will scoff and scorn at this.

Sooner or later something goes amiss;
The singing birds pack up and fly away;
So never try to trick me with a kiss:
The dying man will scoff and scorn at this.

NO HAY NINGUN AST

NO HAY NINGUN ASTEROIDE QUE CAUSE TERERMOTOS…Y, LO QUE ES PEOR…NO LO HA HABIDO NUNCA, NI LO PUEDE HABER…PUES CARECEN DE MASA Y FUERZAS SUFICIENTES …así están las cosas…
