Lemon Tree, A Spanish Poem By Jennifer Clement In English Translation - Poem by Ravi Kopra

If you climb a lemon tree,
feel its bark
with your feet and knees,
smell its white flowers,
rub in your hands its leaves.
Remember,
the tree is older than you
and in its branches,
you might find stories.

***

Árbol de limón

Si te subes a un árbol de limón
siente la corteza
con tus rodillas y pies,
huele sus flores blancas,
talla las hojas
entre tus manos.
Recuerda,
el árbol es mayor que tú
y tal vez encuentres cuentos
entre sus ramas.
