A poem by Joan B. "Dewdrop Tears"

talesforlove

DEWDROP TEARS

 

 

Like the dewdrops on a beautiful flower,

 

The tears fall gently on my face.

 

The  small drops of rain cover the ground

 

With the tears of heaven reflecting the

 

Rays of the sun nourishing nature’s gifts,

 

Those dewdrops sparkle in the sunlight and

 

The beauty surrounding us refreshes our soul.

 

Don't forget our Literary Contest "Nature 2018-2019".

1st September 2018

talesforlove

This is a blog dedicated to literature and nature, based in Portugal, so it is fully justified to look at Spain. We went to see how the writer Cervantes (of Don Quijote de la Mancha) marked this country. We went to Anadalucia and we noticed how its main city, Seville, honors its writers. We saw beautiful plains, warm, like fire, and flowers hung in beautiful pots,  next to monuments with poetic gardens.

This poetic nature reminds us of Peru, with Leo Rojas (El Condor Pasa) and his music always very sister of the forest and the wild mountains.

 

 

 

 

And all this makes us remember Emily Dickinson and Massachussets.

Here we have more about her:

We end with a poem from Poland, by Eliza S.

 

Translated by Artur Komoter

 

Just for a Moment

 

If the world stopped for a moment,

I could sit,

listen to the silence that becomes,

watch how

a river stops flowing,

how the trees congeal into motionlessness.

 

If the world stopped for a moment,

and I with it?

I would not see

flowering meadows,

where a river becomes just a line,

and the still trees

look like sculptures,

I would not hear the ubiquitous silence.

 

If the world stopped

even for one day

then people –

could not hurt people.

 

Tylko na chwilę

 

Gdyby świat zatrzymał się na chwilę,

mogłabym usiąść,

posłuchać jak staje się cisza,

patrzeć jak

rzeka przestaje płynąć,

jak drzewa zastygają w bezruchu.

 

Gdyby świat zatrzymał się na chwilę,

a ja razem z nim?

Nie widziałabym

ukwieconych łąk,

na których rzeka staje się tylko linią,

a nieruchome drzewa

wyglądają jak rzeźby,

nie słyszałabym wszechobecnej ciszy.

 

Gdyby świat zatrzymał się

choć na jeden dzień

wtedy ludzie –

nie mogliby krzywdzić ludzi.

 

Translation to Portuguese by Rui M.

 

Apenas por um momento

Se o mundo parasse por um momento,
Eu poderia sentar-me
ouvir o silêncio que surgiria
e observar como
um rio pára de fluir
e como as árvores se detêm em gélido imobilismo.

Se o mundo parasse por um momento,
e eu com ele?
Eu não veria
prados floridos,
onde um rio se torna apenas uma linha,
e as árvores imóveis
fossem semelhantes a esculturas,
Eu não ouviria o silêncio omnipresente e total.

Se o mundo parasse
mesmo por um dia
então as pessoas -
não poderiam ferir as pessoas.

 

 

 

Bests.

"Nella Fantasia" by Summer Watson

talesforlove

[Italian]

 

Nella Fantasia

 

Nella fantasia io vedo un mondo giusto

Li tutti vivono in pace e in onestà

Io sogno d'anime che sono sempre libere

Come le nuvole che volano

Pien' d'umanità in fondo all'anima


Nella fantasia io vedo un mondo chiaro

Li anche la notte è meno oscura

Io sogno d'anime che sono sempre libere

Come le nuvole che volano


Nella fantasia esiste un vento caldo

Che soffia sulle città, come amico

Io sogno d'anime che sono sempre libere

Come le nuvole che volano

Pien' d'umanità in fondo all'anima

 

[English]

 

In My Fantasy


In my imagination I see a fair world,
Everyone lives in peace and in honesty there.
I dream of souls that are always free,
Like the clouds that fly,
Full of humanity in the depths of the soul.

In my imagination I see a bright world,
Even the night is less dark there.
I dream of souls that are always free,
Like clouds that fly.

In my imagination there exists a warm wind,
That breathes on the cities, like a friend.
I dream of souls that are always free,
Like clouds that fly,
Full of humanity in the depths of the soul.

 

From: http://lyricstranslate.com/en/nella-fantasia-my-fantasy.html

 

[Portuguese]

 

Na minha fantasia 

Na minha imaginação eu vejo um mundo justo, 
E lá todos vivem em paz e honestidade. 
Eu sonho com almas que são sempre livres, 
Tal como as nuvens que voam, 
Cheias de humanidade até às profundidades do seu ser. 

Na minha imaginação eu vejo um mundo luminoso 
Onde mesmo a noite é menos sombria 
Eu sonho que lá as almas são sempre livres, 
Como nuvens a voar 

Na minha imaginação existe um vento quente 
Que sopra sobre a cidade, como um amigo 
Eu sonho com almas sempre livres, 
Como nuvens que voam, 
Cheias de humanidade até ao mais recôndito lugar do seu ser.
