Que es poesia?

(a poem by Gustavo Adolfo Becquer)

¿Qué Es Poesía?

¿Qué es poesía?, dices mientras clavas
En mi pupila tu pupila azul.

¡Qué es poesía! ¿Y tú me lo preguntas?
Poesía eres tú.
~~~~~~~~~o~o~o~o~o~o~~~~~~~

(Loose translation)

What is poetry? whisper your lips
while you stare into my soul.

What is poetry! And you ask me?
Poetry is all of you

    this is one of my most visited posts, yet no one has made a comment. Why could that be?

    I love this poem. It is so simple, yet so stunningly beautiful. I hope you liked my translation.
