Poet Bio

Dellos talanten
que, quiciabes, yá nun tien igua.
Sicasí, un canciu
ye de xemes en cuandu abondu
-comu dellos poemes-
pa entamar a camudar el mundiu.
Ye un canciu -una añada-
qu’atoparás nun requexu
de la to memoria
si entá yes a alcordate
de qu’una vegada
fuisti un nenu.
Daquella entá agüeyabes
colos güeyos de la vieya Gaia.

English Translation

Some people think
that maybe it no longer has a fix.
Even so, a song
is sometimes sufficient
-as some poems-
to start to change the world.
It is a song -a lullaby-
which you will find in a coin
of your memory
if you can still remember
that once,
you have been a child.
At that time, you still watched
the universe with the eyes
of the ancient Gaia.
