Ceasar Vallejo: Black Roses [In English and Spanish]


Cesar Vallejo: Black Roses

Bow down your head ol' poet- To face God's grace ahead There are no more trenches

To dig today? In the forest of your head,

So-: Bow down, bow down,

Ol' barbaric poet! Death rides the horse ahead I hear the crackling of a whip See the crazed eyes of death.

He summons you to his den- The devil and his wind,

So-: Bow down, bow down Your blood stained brows He will take you to the edge.

Closer, closer, I see you now Eh! a moving satanic cloud- I see a festival of black-roses, I hear clamor in the crowd.

Bow down, bow down, Ol' poet ?I hear your applause!

César Vallejo: Rosas Negras

Inclina tu cabeza viejo poeta- Para encarar la gracia de Dios adelante No hay más trincheras Para cavar hoy ? En el bosque de tu cabeza,

Entonces-:

Inclínate, inclínate ¡Viejo poeta barbárico! La muerte monta el caballo adelante Oigo el crujido de un azote Veo los ojos enloquecidos de la muerte.

El te emplaza a su guarida- El demonio y su viento,

Entonces-:

Inclina, inclina Tu frente manchada de sangre El te tomará al borde.

Más cerca, más cerca, te veo ahora ¡Ah! Como una nube móvil satánica- Veo un festival de rosas negras, Oigo el clamor de la muchedumbre.

Inclínate, inclínate viejo poeta ¡Oigo tus aplausos!
