Come, New Year And Bring Love With You! A Spanish Poem By Hermanos Quintero In English Translation
She is sitting behind the iron barred
by Ravi Kopra
green window, looking at the winter flowers.
A prisoner of the spring
She is dreaming, weaving a delicate lace.
Her hands like little doves without plumage
they do patient, long lasting work.
And her soul is a loose butterfly
flies freely from place to place.
A year of dead illusions.
No love of a lover nor of a friend.
Where are the lovers' hearts? she wonders.
Saddened and alone, no one to talk to
deep in her secret emotions, she welcomes the new year -
Come, New Year and bring love with you!
