I HAVE SIN – Poetry by Forough Farrokhzad

I HAVE SIN I have sinned, sin, how much pleasure warm and ardent embrace. I have sinned in two arms, I have sinned, burning hot and strong resentment, I have sinned. In that place of darkness secluded silence, his eyes full of secrets I looked, the beating of my heart furious chest, trembling with desire in her eyes in prayer. …

WANDERING I GO INTO FIRST SNOW – Poetry by Sergei Yesenin

WANDERING I GO INTO FIRST SNOW I go astray on the first snow in the heart of lilies forces erupted. The evening went on my way over the candle turquoise of a star. I do not know if there is light or dark, whether in the forest sing the rooster or the wind. Maybe instead of winter fields, swans have …

THE DAWN – Poetry by Boris Leonidovich Pasternak

THE DAWN   You were everything in my destiny, then came the war and the decay, and long, long you never heard anything more. And after many, many years, your voice again troubled me. All night I read your commands, reviving me as from a swoon. I want to go among the people, the crowd, the animation morning. I am …

MY CRYSTALLINE SOUL – Poetry by Paul Klee

MEINE KRISLALLKLARE SEELE > Meine kristallklare Seele war je da und dort hauchgetrübt, meine Türme manchmal bewölkt.

EVERYWHERE WE GO – Poetry by Henrik Nordbrandt

EVERYWHERE WE GO Everywhere we go, we always come too late what a time we started to find. And in any city we stop, are the houses where it is too late to turn, the gardens where it is too late to spend a moonlit night, and the women that is too late to love, to torment us with their …

LOVE – Poetry by Edith Irene Södergran

LOVE My soul was a dress blue color of the sky. I left on a cliff, at the sea, and naked I came to you, resembling a woman. And as a woman I am sitting at your table and drank a cup of wine, I breathed in the scent by roses. You found me beautiful, that I looked like something …

ONE NIGHT OF WINTER – Poetry by Tomas Tranströmer

ONE NIGHT OF WINTER The storm put down his mouth and blows the house to make a sound. Restless sleep, I turn around, I read the text of the storm dormant. But the child’s eyes are wide open in the dark, and the storm moans for him. They both love the lamps swinging. Both are half way from the language. …

PASSIONATE MADRIGAL – Poetry by Federico Garcia Lorca

MADRIGAL APASIONADO > Quisiera estar en tus labios para apagarme en la nieve de tus dientes. Quisiera estar en tu pecho para en sangre deshacerme. Quisiera en tu cabellera de oro soñar para siempre. Que tu corazón se hiciera tumba del mío doliente. Que mi carne sea tu carne, que mi frente sea tu frente. Quisiera que toda mi alma …

FOR LIVING I DO NOT WANT – Poetry by Pedro Salinas

PARA VIVIR NO QUIERO > Para vivir no quiero islas, palacios, torres. ¡Qué alegría más alta: vivir en los pronombres! Quítate ya los trajes, las señas, los retratos; yo no te quiero así, disfrazada de otra, hija siempre de algo. Te quiero pura, libre, irreductible: tú. Sé que cuando te llame entre todas las gentes del mundo, sólo tú serás …

SONG OF THE ANGEL WITHOUT LUCK – Poetry by Rafael Alberti

CANCION DEL ANGEL SIN SUERTE > Tú eres lo que va: agua que me lleva, que me dejará. Buscadme en la ola. Lo que va y no vulve: viento que en la sombra se apaga y se enciende. Buscadme en la nieve. Lo que nadie sabe: tierra movediza que no habla con nadie. Buscadme en el aire. SONG OF THE …
