Treasure Island

Francisco Luis Bernárdez

(1900-1978 / Buenos Aires)

Soneto interior


Aquí donde la tierra es menos tierra,
Donde el agua es el agua del olvido,
Donde el aire es un aire sin sonido
Y donde el fuego ya no mueve guerra;

Aquí donde la tierra se destierra,
Donde el agua carece de sentido,
Donde el aire prefiere estar dormido
Y donde el fuego su pasión encierra;

El hombre de mirada pensativa
Substituye las cosas de su casa;
La tierra, con su carne fugitiva,

El aire, con el aire de su aliento,
El agua, con su propio sentimiento,
El fuego, con el fuego que lo abrasa.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
