Espeyu Nocherniegu / Nocturnal Mirror by Xe M. Sánchez

Xe M. Sánchez | Oct 1st, 2020 | poetry | No Comments


Nueche de lluna llena.
Nueche afayadiza
pa la poesía.
La lluna namái ye un espeyu
qu’emplega Belenus
(el vieyu sol celta)
pa peñase
anantes d’alborecer
y la nueche
namái ye una solombra
que me remembra’l mio llugar
nel universu.

English Translation

Full moon night.
Cozy night
for poetry-
The moon is only the mirror
used by Belenus
(the old Celtic sun)
to comb himself
before dawn
and the night
is only a shadow
which reminds me my place
in the universe.
