Si se es pueblo

Si se es pueblo,
tan pueblo,
sumido en tal miseria
… que se ensucia la historia si se marcan sus huellas.
Que ni su propio rostro es imagen de espejo,
pedestal o monedas.
Que no es suya la voz que le canta a la tierra;
ni es el agua que corre por valles y laderas
la que lava su alma,
que fecunda su espera,
la que acoge su llanto y refleja su estrella.

(Fragmento) Luis Carvajal

***

If you are people

If you are people,
so people,
…That history gets dirty if its tracks are marked.
That not even its own face is a mirror’s image,
pedestal or coins.
That the voice that sings to the earth is not its own;
nor the water that runs by valleys and slopes
the one that washes its soul,
it fertilizes its waiting,
which welcomes its crying and reflects its star.

(Fragment) Luis Carvajal
