AMANECER Silvio Rodríguez (Cuba) Qué musa maravillosa habrá bajado a besarte y qué delicia tortuosa habrá sentido al dejarte. Tú te diste a musicarla con violines de ambrosía y a la hora de guardarla viste tus manos vacías. Pobre insensato pintor, paleta en mano tinta de amanecer, rompiendo sombras, inventando el color que sólo tú podías, sólo tú creías ver. Así voló tu memoria aún más allá que tus años. Siempre es noticia una historia de besos y desengaños. Desde que hallaste la musa que te llevó a la locura, canta tu línea inconclusa la misma recta sin cura. ***** DAWN (English Translation) What marvelous muse Could have come down to kiss you And what tortuous delight She would have felt, on leaving you. You decided to set her to music With ambrosial violins But at the moment of grasping her You found your hands empty. Poor foolish painter, Palette in you hand tinged with dawn, Breaking shadows, inventing colour As you alone could, as you alone believed to see. Thus your memory flew away, Even further than your years. It’s always news, a story of kisses and disillusion. Since you found the muse Who carried you to madness, Sing your unfinished line - The same, inevitably straight line.
