Borges, Jorge Luis: Farewell (Despedida in English)

Portre of Borges, Jorge Luis
Portre of anonim

Back to the translator

Despedida (Spanish)

Entre mi amor y yo han de levantarse

trescientas noches como trescientas paredes

y el mar será una magia entre nosotros.


No habrá sino recuerdos.

Oh tardes merecidas por la pena,

noches esperanzadas de mirarte,

campos de mi camino, firmamento

que estoy viendo y perdiendo...


Definitiva como un mármol

entristecerá tu ausencia otras tardes.

Farewell (English)

Between my love and me three hundred nights

Like three hundred walls will have to be raised

And the sea shall be like magic between us.


Nothing will remain except memories.

O afternoons brought in with suffering,

The nights aspiring to see you,

The fields on my way, the firmament

That I am seeing and losing…


Certain as marble

Your absence shall sadden other afternoons.
