BY YOUR EYES ALIGHT – Poetry, by José Martí

byyoureyes1.1POR TUS OJOS ENCENDIDOS > Por tus ojos encendidos, y lo mal puesto de un broche, pensé que estuviste anoche, jugando a juegos prohibidos. Te odié por vil y alevosa: te odié con odio de muerte. Náusea me daba de verte, tan villana y tan hermosa. Y por la escuela que vi, sin aber cómo ni cuándo, sé que estuviste llorando toda la noche por mí.

BY YOUR EYES ALIGHT > For your eyes alight, and because of a bad snap, I thought you were last night, playing forbidden games. I hated you for vile and perfidious: I hated hatred of death. Nausea gave me to see, so villainous and so beautiful. And at school I saw, without aber how or when, I know you were crying all night for me.

(José Martí)
