In search of my Beloved – En busca de mi amado


 
(En busca de mi amado)
 
In search of my Beloved
beyond mountains and shores will I depart.
Nor will I pick the flowers,
nor will I fear the beasts,
but throgh all forts and frontiers will I pass.
 
O night that was my guide!
O night kinder than the very dawn;
O night that didst thou join
lover with the Beloved,
the Beloved in the lover transformed!
    (cont. tomorrow)

En busca de mi amado…  (¿Buscando mis amores?) (No tengo por qué continuar aquí, pues este poema es de sobra conocido. Pueden mirar arriba la pobre y desvaída traducción al inglés de la que soy responsable después de haber tenido un tal atrevimiento (las hay mejores, sin duda). Terminará mañana.
