I DO NOT WANT ANOTHER LIGHT THAT YOUR BODY FRONT OF THE MINE – Poetry, Miguel Hernández

I DO NOT WANT ANOTHER LIGHT THAT YOUR BODY FRONT OF THE MINE I do not want other light that your body front of the mine, absolute light, complete transparency. Clarity whose belly, as the bottom of the river, affirms itself with time, sinks with the blood . What have they done to durable and shiny materials, the heart of ...

SHE REMEMBER HIM – Poetry, Maria do Rosário Pedreira

SHE REMEMBER HIM She remembered him and for love, even if he thought of a snake, would say only an arabesque. It would have hidden in the skirt the hot bite, the wound, the imprint of all the deceptions, she would do almost anything for love. Would give sleep and blood, home and happiness, and would have kept silent ghosts ...

MELANCHOLY – Poetry, by Rubén Darío

MELANCOLIA > Hermano, tú que tienes la luz, dime la mía. Soy como un ciego. Voy sin rumbo y ando a tientas. Voy bajo tempestades y tormentas, ciego de sueño y loco de armonía. Ése es mi mal. Soñar. La poesía es la camisa férrea de mil puntas cruentas que llevo sobre el alma. Las espinas sangrientas dejan caer las ...

SHADOWS – Poetry, by Henrik Nordbrandt

SHADOWS So I thought of you, and I’ve written so much about you, not to know who you were. In so many rooms I slept, without you by my side, and many are houses in which I lived, without you. Many are the cities where I met you. There are many things I have run out, or lost due to ...

HERBERT MARSHALL – Poetry, by Edgar Lee Masters

HERBERT MARSHALL All your sorrow, Louise, and hatred of me, sprang from your delusion that it was wantonness of spirit and contempt of your soul’s rights, which made me turn to Annabelle and forsake you. You really grew to hate me for love of me, because I was your soul’s happiness, formed and tempered to solve your life for you, ...

DEDICATION – Poetry, by Anna Akhmatova

DEDICATION Ahead of this punishment bend the mountains, not flows the great river, but balances the prison locks, behind them “the dens of life imprisonment”, and with anguish. For someone breathes fresh wind, for someone yearns sunset, we do not know, we are the same everywhere, we hear hateful screeching of keys, and heavy steps of soldiers. It rose like ...

FLYING HIGH, WORD – Poetry, by Mario Luzi

FLYING HIGH, WORD Fly high, word, grow in depth, touching nadir and zenith of your signification, because sometimes I can dream that the thing you cry in the darkness of the mind, however, do not separate yourself from me, do not come, please, to this celestial event, from alone, without the heat on me, or at least my memory, be ...

REBIRTH – Poetry, by Yannis Ritsos

REBIRTH For years no one took care of the garden. Yet this year, May, June, it flourished alone, broke out all over to the railing, a thousand roses, a thousand carnations, geraniums, a thousand, a thousand sweet peas, purple, orange, green, red and yellow, colors, color-wings. So much so that the woman came back, to give the water with his ...

LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT – Poetry, of Wisława Szymborska

LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT > They’re both convinced that a sudden feeling united them. It’s beautiful that a certainty, but uncertainty is more beautiful. Not knowing themselves, they believe that it never happened between them. But they think the streets, staircases, hallways where long ago they could interbreed? I would ask them, if they do not remember, once a face ...

SONG OF LOVE – Poetry of Rainer Maria Rilke

SONG OF LOVE > And how I will detain my soul, because your not just reach? As I will rise to other spheres, where you most is not? Oh, I would hide it in something, that go missing in the dark alone, in an unknown and silent corner, that does not vibrate more when the rivibrano your depth! But everything ...
