Poetry: Beauty, Love and Truth – La Poesía: Belleza, Amor y Verdad

Beauty is not separable or abstracted from Being or from Truth, as also from enjoyment, happiness; any emotion or sentiment on their part, including sadness, reflected in poetry, cannot be separated either from the latter, since they all stem from the same origin, namely Being, Beauty, Happiness.The true poet aims at that splendor, that reality and the love that unites the other two.That is why poetry is a divine art, a "gift from the gods".


La belleza no se puede separar o abstraer del Ser o de la Verdad, como tampoco puede serlo del gozo, la felicidad. Tampoco todos los sentimientos que se reflejan en la poesía pueden separarse de esa felicidad, puesto que todos ellos, incluida la tristeza, tienen su origen en el Ser, que es Felicidad y Belleza. El verdadero poeta tiene en su punto de mira ese esplendor, esa realidad, y el amor que lleva todo a su unión. Es por eso que la poesía es un arte divino, un "regalo de los dioses".
