Pound, Ezra: Cantar CXX (Canto CXX in Spanish)

Portre of Pound, Ezra

Canto CXX (English)

I have tried to write Paradise
Do not move
   Let the wind speak
that is paradise.
Let the Gods forgive what I
   have made
Let those I love try to forgive
   what I have made.

Cantar CXX (Spanish)

He intentado escribir el Paraíso.
Que no os mováis.
   Dejad hablar al viento
ese es el Paraíso.
Que los dioses olviden
   lo que he realizado.
A aquellos a quienes amo,
   perdonen lo que he realizado.
