Faithful Page

Poem by Emilio Prados
Distant sea, do you know your mystery?...
There, upon your shore,
the smallest dream of man
does not remain forgotten,
as in the soul the thought
-petal, sun and mother - of - pearl -,
on the shoulders of time ...

... Distant sea:
my body lies upon your sand,
over the shadow of this body,
and dreams, dreams, dreams, asleep within you,
that in lives without you like me when I am awake,
with my forehead in the water and my eyes full of the thirst,
while the sea lives, my blood, in your memory.
