The Lull of Twilight [Over Mantaro Valley] In English and Spanish

Twilight, was now beginning. As for

the sun, it was down-down over
the Mantaro Valley of Peru. The softness
of the Valley's mist, covered everything;
from the Andes to the Valley?and
through

(then I noticed)

?the color of charcoal blended into earth

and sky-; ebbing between this was the
mystery of twilight (the parting of day, for
the birth of night); where little, to nothing
was said-where motion was almost dead
(between man and beast); but not nature!

'Tis a time unto itself-between calm and

caution, silent oblivion and night; even
the shadows and shades surrender, mind-
to-mind with their earthy hoists, for a
moment?.

'Tis the moment of sunset, when light

is thin and narrow, and shadows
emerge; thus, day and night become one
-with two-natures; stretched-out, glowing
above and within the horizon.

The twittering of birds, the rustle of trees,

children readying for sleep-; an overall
stagnation in life, comes over the valley,
even the spirits stand still in abnormal
silence, and gaze.

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."

In Spanish

La Calma del Crepúsculo
(Sobre el valle del Mantaro)

El crepúsculo, ahora estaba comenzando. Entonces para
El sol, esto estaba cayendo-cayendo sobre
El valle del Mantaro de Perú. La suavidad.
De la niebla del valle, cubrió todo;
Desde los Andes hacia el valle-y A través

(Luego yo noté)

El color del carbón vegetal mezclado entre tierra
Y el cielo-; refluyendo entre esto era el

misterio del crepúsculo (la partida del día, para
El nacimiento de la noche); donde poco o nada
Fue dicho-donde el movimiento estaba casi muerto
(Entre el hombre y la bestia); ¡pero sin naturaleza!

Junta un tiempo consigo mismo entre la calma y
La precaución, olvido silencioso y noche; aún
Las sombras y sombras rondando mente

a mente con sus grúas terrosas por un momento?

Junta el momento de la puesta de sol, cuando la luz
Es delgada y estrecha, y las sombras
surgen; mas, día y noche llegan a ser uno
-con dos naturalezas; estrechadas, encendidas
Sobre y dentro del horizonte.

El cantar de los pajaritos, el crujido de los árboles,
Los niños listos para dormir-; y sobretodo
Un estancamiento total de la vida, viene sobre el valle,
Aun los espíritus parados todavía en un anormal
Silencio, y mirada fija.

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".
