Chan Chan and The Gorriones (Two Poems in English and Spanish)
The following two poems, one in English, the other in English and Spanish were done during this ongoing trip in Peru, while in Lima, although the poem concerning: Chan Chan was oriinally started last year,while at the ancient site in Northern Peru, it was just finished recently.
The Gorriones of Lima
It is fall all around me-
The Gorriones are swimming in the air Underneath the Lima sky
As if-, if fish could fly?
Summer has gone its way
It is fall again I say! The birds-, they just walk on by
Looking, as if, if on parade-
The world keeps spinning;
They just do not see it Until the hour comes?
When the sun goes down!?
Things get a little dim;
Yet the Gorriones keep on swimming Gracefully, swimming, in the wind-
Under the Lima sky? .
Note: #634 (4-30-05) Written in Lima, Peru
A Short, Saga of Chan Chan English Version
The Mochicas built the Great Temples
Of the Sun and Moon (For I have seen them)
Long before Tacaynamo Came from the Sea...
Who gave birth to the name Called, "The Moche," of Chan Chan!
Long before the Inca conquest Of the Chimus!...
Long before the conquest of This land, called Peru!...
Note: taken from notes taken at the archeological site last April 2004, and revised, April 2005, into poetic form. --#633.
Un Cuento Corto, de Chan Chan

Mucho antes de la conquista inca ĄDe los Chimus!...
Mucho antes de la conquista de ĄEsta tierra, llamada Peru!...
