The Lull of Twilight [Over Mantaro Valley] In English and Spanish
Twilight, was now beginning. As for
the sun, it was down-down over
(then I noticed)
?the color of charcoal blended into earth
and sky-; ebbing between this was the
'Tis a time unto itself-between calm and
caution, silent oblivion and night; even
'Tis the moment of sunset, when light
is thin and narrow, and shadows
The twittering of birds, the rustle of trees,
children readying for sleep-; an overall
Notes by the author: "For me, twilight seems to lure and lull the soul into a deceptive confidence; yet it remains an enticement, bait for the most part, that attracts most living things into a glowing sensation; perhaps God's way of numbing us for a moment, while the earth orbits around the sun, and the moon around the earth, all pulling forces on us small human beings-perchance, it is needed for a moments stillness on the soul."
La Calma del Crepúsculo
El crepúsculo, ahora estaba comenzando. Entonces para
(Luego yo noté)
El color del carbón vegetal mezclado entre tierra
misterio del crepúsculo (la partida del día, para
Junta un tiempo consigo mismo entre la calma y
a mente con sus grúas terrosas por un momento?
Junta el momento de la puesta de sol, cuando la luz
El cantar de los pajaritos, el crujido de los árboles,
Notas por el autor: "Para mi, el Crepúsculo parece atraer y calmar El alma dentro de una confidencia engañosa; todavía permanece una tentación, Cebo por así decirlo, que atrae mas cosas vivientes dentro de una sensación Encendida; talvez el camino de Dios entumeciéndonos por un momento, Mientras la tierra orbita alrededor del sol, y la luna alrededor de la tierra todas Las fuerzas jalando sobre nosotros pequeños humanos seres- posiblemente, Esto es necesario para momentos calmados sobre el alma".

Savage Nature: The Life of Ted Hughes
One of the most important poets of the post-war period, Edward James Hughes (1930-1998), was drawn towards the primitive. He was enchanted by the beauty of the natural world, frequently portraying its cruel and savage temperament in his work as a reflection of his own personal suffering and mystical beliefs - convinced that modern man had lost touch with the primordial side of his nature.
Passion and Poetry, and Life
Ironically, the passion that can neutralize the repulsion for difficulties depends on the effort to overcome these difficulties. The irony resides in the circularity of this principle - which applies to all areas of activity, including poetry: One must make the effort to overcome difficulties to achieve success and feel capable, and one needs this achievement and feeling to have a passion for making this effort.
