Ode To Your Lips (Oda A Tus Labios)

Today, I thought I’d translate a poem that I originally wrote in spanish (see below). It’s tough translating poetry, because you often lose the rhythm/meaning, but I tried.

Ode To Your Lips

Delicate
Like the petals
Of a rose

Tender
Like the wings
Of a bird

Spectacular
Like a rainbow
In the winter

Divine
Like the murmur of a mother
To her child

Heavenly
Like the sea lit up
By a full moon

Unforgettable
Like watching the sky
In the light of dawn

Firm
Like this love
That overwhelms my senses

Your lips
The sweet escape
That leaves me breathless

Oda A Tus Labios

Delicados
Como los pétalos
De una rosa

Tiernos
Como las alas
De una paloma

Sumos
Como un arco iris
En el invierno

Divinos
Como el arrullo de una madre
A su chiquillo

Celestiales
Como el mar prendido
De luna llena

Inolvidables
Como ver el cielo
En la víspera

Firmes
Como este amor
Que repleta los sentidos

Tus labios
La morada bendita
Donde yacen mis suspiros…
