Creed - Poem by Gabriela Mistral

I believe in my heart that when
The wounded heart sunk within the depth of God sings
It rises from the pond alive
As if new-born.

I believe in my heart that what I wring from myself
To tinge life’s canvas
With red of pallid hue, thus cloaking it
In luminous garb.

    Creed

    I believe in my heart that when
    The wounded heart sunk within the depth of God sings
    It rises from the pond alive
    As if new-born.

    I believe in my heart that what I wring from myself
    To tinge life’s canvas
    With red of pallid hue, thus cloaking it
    In luminous garb.


    - in ITALIAN:

    Credo

    Credo fermamente che quando
    Il cuore ferito, immerso nella profondità di Dio, canta
    Esso sorge dallo stagno vivo
    Come un nuovo nato.

    Credo nel mio cuore che ciò che spremo da me stessa
    Per tingere la tela della vita
    Con un rosso dal pallido tono, lo occulto così
    In un veste luminosa.
