Love Poems In Spanish
Llagas de amor / Wounds of Love



 

Original Version in Spanish
Llagas de amor

Esta luz, este fuego que devora.
Este paisaje gris que me rodea.
Este dolor por una sola idea.
Esta angustia de cielo, mundo y hora.

Este llanto de sangre que decora
lira sin pulso ya, lúbrica tea.
Este peso del mar que me golpea.
Este alacrán que por mi pecho mora.

Son guirnalda de amor,
cama de herido,
donde sin sueño,
sueño tu presencia
entre las ruinas de mi pecho hundido.

(More : Spanish Love Poems)

Y aunque busco la
cumbre de prudencia,
me da tu corazón
valle tendido
con cicuta y
pasión de amarga ciencia.

By Federico García Lorca

 

English Translation
Wounds of Love

This light, this flame that devours,
this grey country that surrounds me,
this pain from a sole idea,
this anguish of the sky, earth and time,

This lament of blood that now adorns
a lyre with no pulse, lubricious torch,
this weight of sea that breaks on me,
this scorpion that lives inside my heart,

They are a garland of love,
bed of the wounded,
where without dreaming,
I dream of your presence
among the ruins of my sunken chest.

(More : Neruda Love Poems)

And though I seek the
summit of discretion
your heart grants me
a valley stretched below,
with hemlock and
passion of bitter wisdom.

By Federico García Lorca
