Two Spanish Poems


hermosa como la luna .

en la noche que brilla



los ciervos pastan en los campos silenciosos

En las montañas hay nieve blanca


Beautiful like the moon

In the night shining



Deer graze in the silent fields

The mountains are white with snow


as arañas de los tejen telas hechas de la mañana del rocío

todo el día los pájaros se balancean como las hojas

en el árbol de la ventana

la hierba canta melodías en el viento

las flores recoger las mariposas

se acumulan las nubes el sol

por la noche el cartero pasa por su casa

y se olvida de salir de las cartas que nunca escribió

las arañas salen de su escondite

Por la noche

yo sueño de la seda como las hojas

envolver alrededor de mi sueño.


the spiders of the morning spin webs made of dew

all day the birds sway like leaves

on the tree by your window

the grass sings melodies in the wind

the flowers collect butterflies

the clouds gather up the sun

in the evening the postman walks by your house

and forgets to leave the letters i never wrote

the spiders come out of their hiding

at night

i dream of silk as the sheets

wrap around my sleep.

I loved the delicacy in imagery and feeling in your poems here Finn.

I also loved that you wrote them in both Spanish and English. While I have yet to learn the Spanish language I enjoyed having an attempt in speaking Spanish out aloud as I read through your poems. I would love it if you continued to write poetry in both Spanish and English:)

thank you for your kind words

What an expressing of a sunset, the first poem, and a sunrise the second. Reminds me of my early childhood's first 8 years where I began studying the ecosystem that still has much hidden from me because of the shortness of my travels. The earth is vast and what we see alone, as those poems reveal, are so specular senes it's almost impossible to see them all in a single life and especially when we confined ourselves to a single place. But most of the time when we do travel we look only at the things man made and not the ecological system where each day there is change in one form or another that adds to its majesticness. Thanks you for expressing them.

well thank you. i cannot really verify completely their accuracy as I am very limited in my spanish right now as well, but it was an attempt.

They are lovely poems. I love the Spanish language, it's so romantic. I have been trying to learn a few worlds in Spanish as my Mother lives there. Spain is a beautiful country.
