Poem of the Month

Delmira Agustini (Uruguay)

Explosion

If life were love, how blessed it would be!

I want more life so to love! Now I feel

A thousand years of ideas are not worth

One blue minute of sentiment.

My heart was dying slowly, sadly...

Now it opens like a Phoebean flower:

Life rushes forth like a turbulent sea

Whipped by the hand of love.

My sorrow flies into the night, sad, cold

With its broken wings;

Like an old scar that continues to ache—

In the distant shade it dissolves...

All my life sings, kisses, laughs!

All my life is a flowering mouth!
