Quotes by Spanish Authors
On the first moon landing, 1969-07-21.
Like the smell of roses that comes from the bushes
on a May morning, there are soft loves
which you neither feel coming, nor see when they arrive
through the loving door that the heart opens for them
by itself, as opens in August
the flower of dew in the evening.
And with no sound or complaint, no cries, or songs,
soft and lonely, like the breath of angels,
in us they take life, they run through our blood
and they, beautiful loves, are reborn from the spirit where they lived.
Look for these loves ..., look for them,
if you have someone who can offer them to you;
since these are the only ones that last
in this passing life.
Galician 19th century poetry
