Spanish Poems

El Soneto de los Trece Versos

¡De una juvenil inocencia
Qué conservar sino el sutil
Perfume, esencia de su abril,
La más maravillosa esencia!

Por lamentar a mi conciencia
Quedó de un sonoro marfil
Un cuento que fue de las mil
Y una noches de mi existencia...

Scherezada se entredurmió...
El visir quedó meditando...
Dinarzarda el día olvidó...
Mas el pájaro azul volvió...

Pero... No obstante... Siempre... Cuando...
Rubén Darío

The thirteen verses sonnet

From a youthful innocence
What to keep if not the subtle
Perfume, Essence of its April,
The most wonderful essence!

By lamenting my conscience
Ivory was a resounding
A story that was a thousand
And a night of my existence ...

Scherezada is between slept...
The vizier was meditating...
Dinarzarda forgot the day...
But the bluebird back...

But ... However ... Always ... When ...

Rubén Darío
