Teasdale, Sara: Si la muerte es generosa (If death is kind in Spanish)

Portre of Teasdale, Sara

If death is kind (English)

Perhaps if Death is kind, and there can be returning,
We will come back to earth some fragrant night,
And take these lanes to find the sea, and bending
Breathe the same honeysuckle, low and white.

We will come down at night to these resounding beaches
And the long gentle thunder of the sea,
Here for a single hour in the wide starlight
We shall be happy, for the dead are free.

Si la muerte es generosa (Spanish)

Quizás si la muerte es generosa y existe un retorno
volveremos una fragante noche a la tierra
y por estos caminos hasta la mar, y agachándonos
aspiremos la misma madreselva, pequeña y blanca.
De noche bajaremos a estas playas sonoras
y al largo y gentil trueno del mar,
y aquí, durante una simple hora de brillante luz,
seremos felices, pues los muertos son libres.
