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 will I give to you? I don't know...
I will give to you everything -
The sun, the moon, the skies, the world...
What is poetry?
What is poetry? You say
When you peer into my eyes
With your blue eyes.
What is poetry? You ask me
Poetry, you are my poetry, my love.
