But like love
the archers
are blind

Upon the green night,
the piercing saetas
leave traces of warm
lily.

The keel of the moon
breaks through purple clouds

A great metaphor of loves confusing direction, it never aims where you want it to go, but ends up where it must. A poem of wise sentiments.

There is an old saying that 'Love is Blind', but that is not a desirable thing for an archer, who must accurately make his mark! A lovely poem from the pen of Federico Garcia Lorca.
