Cat's Dream

Rating: 3.2
How neatly a cat sleeps,

This translation is marvelous. Ayudaría si escribese la traducíon en inglesia. I love the Spanish language and Pablo Neruda and Federico Garcia Lorca were the voice of the underground and truth, la verdad! ! Give the power to the Friday for Future and revamp the hippy movement and stop pollution and waste of good thought!

how the night flowed through it like dark water; and at times, it was going to fall or possibly plunge into the bare deserted snowdrifts. Sometimes it grew so much in sleep like a tiger's great-grandfather, great writings great 10+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++x1000000
