Un poème pour parer le jour – Un poema para ornar el día

 

Inmortalidad

Te amé tanto que, un día, abandonó mi alma
la cárcel de su cuerpo. Errátil, y no hallándote,
regresó a la morada que yo daba por mía.
Mas no estaba mi cuerpo donde allí lo dejara,
sino el tuyo, vastísimo, como un templo de oro.
Y no le diste asilo. Y ya no tendré muerte.

Vicente Nuñez

Immortalité

Je t’aimai tant qu’un jour, mon âme déserta
la prison de son corps. Errante, et te cherchant en vain,
elle reprit le chemin de la demeure que je croyais être mienne;
mais mon corps n’était plus là où je l’avais laissé ;
à sa place était le tien, immense, tel un temple d’or.
Et tu refusas de lui donner asile. Et moi, je n’aurai plus de mort.

Vicente Nuñez traduit par E. Bornand

Immortality3

Immortality

I loved you so much that one day my soul deserted
the prison of its body. Wandering and searching in vain for you,
it went back to the place I thought was mine;
but my body was not where I had left;
in its place was yours, huge, like a golden temple.
And you withheld from giving it asylum. And I will not have death.

Vicente Nuñez translated by FP
