Siesta Time.

Siesta Time.

Phil LeNoir. El Palacio, June 14, 1918.


A MUD-BROWN hut on a mesa bare
A burro dozing near,
The blue shades drawn, the door ajar—
Siesta time is here.

Blazing sun—shimmering heat;
The burro wags his ear.
All silent as the distant hills—
Siesta time is here.

Oh, rushing world! Oh, world so tired!
Your lot would seem less drear
If every day you’d steal away
When siesta time draws near.
—El Palacio, Santa Fe, New Mexico.
