Idiomas Fantásticas

I love Spanish poetry. Most of it seems like prose to me, but nevertheless it is beautiful. It is my aim, today, to imitate some of the greats that I have read and loved. I hope you enjoy it. I will post a translation in English below the original, but, as always, it doesn’t quite do it justice.

 

Idiomas Fantásticas

Hoy.
Hoy es un día de los en que yo quiero gritar en una idioma fantástica
Pero no sé nada de esos
Sé una idioma romántica
Pues, escribo en la lengua de Barcelona, de Santiago, y de todos los corazones de los amantes que aman hoy.

En mi opinión, la alma de cada amante habla, implora, en español
Pero no entienden las palabras, mucha gente, porque apprendieron lenguas diferentes
Y estan dejado tratar entender sus corazones que solo pueden comunicar con gestos y sonidos vacuos

La cosa extraña es este:
Yo hablo la lengua de Barcelona, de Santiago, y de todos los corazones de los amantes que aman hoy
Y mucho del tiempo, no puedo distinguir las palabras de mi corazón del viento
Quizás mi corazon habla Francés

Debo aprender la Francés

 

Fantastical Languages

Today is one of those days when I want to shout in a fantastical language
But I don’t know any of those
I know a romantic language
Thus, I write in the language of Barcelona, of Santiago, and of all of the hearts of all of the lovers who love today

It is my belief that the soul of every lover speaks, pleads, in Spanish
But they don’t understand its words, many of them, because they learned different languages
And they are left trying to decipher empty gestures and sounds

This is the strange thing:
I speak the language of Barcelona, of Santiago, and of all the hearts of all the lovers who love today
And most of the time I still can’t distinguish the words of my heart from the blowing of the wind
Perhaps my heart speaks French

I should learn French.
