I'm very much of the view that poetry is untranslateable, but that doesn't mean that a poem can't be at least good in a language other than the one it was written in. This one does very well. I think these Latin poets who tend to go in for streams of slightly surrealistic images tend to travel better than some. This one also has a decent rhythm in English. I don't know what it's like in Spanish of course.

That's the text and recitation (with cheesy music unfortunately) in Spanish.

It's so peaceful. I really like it.

Week 19. Astounding.

Yeah, isn't it?

Here it is set to music, in English. About 30 seconds in I was smirking, but about 60 seconds in I was liking it.
