Pensamiento inquieto

—Detente un punto, pensamiento inquieto;
la victoria te espera,
el amor y la gloria te sonríen.
¿Nada de esto te halaga ni encadena?
—Dejadme solo y olvidado y libre;
quiero errante vagar en las tinieblas;
mi ilusión más querida
sólo allí dulce y sin rubor me besa.


Restless Thoughts


Just stop right there, restless thoughts!

Victory awaits you,

plus love and glory.


 You smile?

Nothing pleases you?

Then take away my chains!

Leave me alone and forgotten

and free.


 Let me wander in the darkness —

 just aimlessly wander around,

nursing my dearest hope

that somewhere there

—just somewhere —

my dear sweet husband awaits me

to shamelessly cover me

with sweet kisses.
