Two Short Poems By Gustavo Adolfo Bécquer In English Translation
by Ravi Kopra
If I could just see you once
I will give the world to you
If I could just see you once smiling at me
I will give the sky to you
If I could just kiss you once
What would I give to you. I don't know...
I will give to you all
The sun, the moon, the skies, the world...
What is poetry?
What is poetry? You say
while you peer into my eyes with your blue eyes;
What is poetry? You ask me.
Poetry, you are my poetry, my love!
