to be a poet

To be a poet is to be louder , bigger
Than men! Biting as who kisses!
It is like being a beggar and to give whoever be
King of the Kingdom of Behind and Beyond  Pain!

It is to have  of a thousand wishes the splendor
And do not even to know what to want !
It is to have  here deep inside a flaming star,
It is to have  claws and wings of condor!

It is hunger, thirst of Infinite!
By elmo, the golden satin mornings .
It is to condense the world into a single cry! And is to love you, like that, madly .
You being soul and blood, and life in me And saying this singing it to everyone!
