Three Poems: Dona Leonors Revenge; The Old Moon; Common Sides [All in Spanish/all in English]

1) Doña Leonor's Revenge
[1627 AD]

Rafael Ortiz's fate
Was on the plate
Of Doña Leonor's

When she arrived
In Lima, Peru;
To taste revenge

For the beheading
Of her husband.
And so the plot

?was now played out
(in an alleyway)
As she gutted her trout!

In Spanish

Translated by Nancy Penaloza

La leyenda de:
La venganza de doña Leonor
(1627 después de cristo)

El destino de Rafael Ortiz
Estaba sobre el plato
De doña Leonor.

Cuando ella llegó
A Lima Perú;
Para saborear la venganza

Por la decapitación
De su esposo.
Y entonces el complot

Fue llevado a su fin ahora
(En un callejón)
Como ella destripó su trucha!

2) The Old Moon

The winds, the winds-moments pass
Pass into years, years and more years
And the moon continues to make light
Upon me, with eerie fearless nights?

Under its passing shadows at twilight
She stands alone, looking into my eyes;
At dusk, we linger on, down the path
Like live sphinxes?she follows me:

Looking, looking down, down at me?.

There is a time between now and then
I call it forever?and soon?
But that's between me and you-
Me, and you and the twilight moon.

She has her secret eyes you know
Blinking across sky and meadow
Passing, passing soundlessly?by?
Blinking across meadow and sky!...

Spanish Version

La Luna Vieja
[The Old Moon]

Los vientos, los vientos-momentos pasan
Pasan convirtiéndose en años, años y más años
Y la luna continúa produciendo luz
Sobre mi y espeluznantes noches intrépidas?

Bajo sus pasajeras sombras en el crepúsculo
Ella está sola, mirando en mis ojos;
Al anochecer, nos rezagamos, a lo largo del camino
Como una esfinge viva?ella me sigue:

Mirando, mirando abajo, mirándome a mí?

Hay un tiempo entre ahora y entonces
Llamo a esto para siempre?y pronto?
Pero esto es entre mi y tú-

3) Common Sides [English Versión]

Youth has its age
And age its pride;
One thinks he knows
The other thinks why;
But youth and age

With separate ties-
Have common sides:

Life, death, and quest,
And a hope chest
That never rests.

Note: this poem was found by the author after 25-years being misplaced; written May, l981, and reviewed by Poetry North Review, Anchorage, Alaska by Dale A. Stirling, Editor/Publisher l980-86, Poetry North Review, his comments: "?very smooth and convey real feeling?." Author is unaware if it was published by any previous anthologies, but feels up to this writing it has not been published; consequently, the first time published in this set of poems. #82

In Spanish

Lados Comunes

La juventud tiene su edad
Y edad su orgullo;
Uno piensa que él sabe,

El otro piensa por qué;
Pero la juventud y la edad

Con lazos separados ?
Tienen lados comunes:

La vida, la muerte, y la búsqueda,

Y una esperanza en el pecho

Estos nunca descansan.

Note: este poema fue encontrado por el autor después de 25 años siendo extraviado; Escrito mayo, l981, y poesía revisada por, Revisión al norte, el Anclaje, Alaska por Dale A. Stirling, Redactor/Editor l980-86, Poesía revisión al norte, sus comentarios: "?muy sencillo y transporta el verdadero sentimiento. " El autor no es consciente si esto fue publicado por cualquier antología anterior, pero conociendo esta escritura no ha sido publicado; por consiguiente, por primera vez publicada en este juego de poemas.
