Who demands and refuses a child, Pretending to be asleep when you come home, Who startles you awake to ask for explanations, Who laughs at your old books, Who serves you an empty plate, with sarcasm, Who threatens to become a nun, Who disappears at last into the multitude. And so, that was all. See yourself an old man With other old men your age, sitting Profoundly in the public square, You shake your feet, your eye twitches, lo evitan las palomas que comen a sus pies el pan que Ud. les da para atraérselas.
She was the smell of bread and the saved apples, the hand of the magic root and the conjuror’s voice. The poverty of those long winters wrapped in sugar like the humble sweets. Fed fifteen children from her miraculous hands. Slept fifteen children with her sleep of owls. Great grandsons have passed through her withered arms but she is still the hand mixing water and flour, she is the silence of the night with sleeping birds, the oven of childhood with the vanishing bread. My father was the one most like the earth.
Muchos nietos y biznietos hemos seguido pasando por sus brazos enjutos. Pero ella es siempre la mano que mezcla agua y harina. Es el silencio de la noche de pájaros dormidos. Es el brasero de la infancia con la tortilla corredora. Mi padre era el que más se parecía a la tierra. Debe haber nacido junto con el maíz y el trigo. Mi padre era moreno, y dormía en su caballo. Era como el jinete lento de la primavera. Mis otros tíos todos se parecían a las aves del lugar. Todos tenían algo de los árboles y las serranías.
