A poem from my follow-up book to "A SALUTE TO SPANISH POETRY: 100 MASTERPIECES FROM SPAIN AND LATIN AMERICA RENDERED INTO ENGLISH VERSE."


 

 

Canción de alborada 

 

 por Fernando de Rojas

 

 

 

Papagayos, ruiseñores,

que cantáis al alborada,

llevad nueva a mis amores,

cómo espero aquí sentada.

 

La media noche es pasada,

y no viene.

Sabedme si hay otra amada 

que lo detiene.

 

Dawn Poem

 

 translated from the Spanish of

Fernando de Rojas

 

 

 

Parrots, nightingales,

you singing heralds of the dawn!

What news of my love do you bring me

while I wait here, wan and worn?

 

I wait. Day is done

and still you do not come!

Is it possible another heart

is keeping us apart?

 

 

John Howard Reid
