The permanent temptation of life is to confuse dreams with reality. The permanent defeat of life is when dreams are surrendered to reality.

El remanso de aire
The still waters of the air
bajo la rama del eco.
under the bough of the echo.
El remanso del agua
The still waters of the water
bajo fronda de luceros
under a frond of stars.
El remanso de tu boca
The still waters of your mouth
bajo espesura de besos.
under a thicket of kisses.

Federico GarcĂ­a Lorca (1899-1936)
Translated from the Spanish by Lysander Kemp
