La rosa/ no buscaba la aurora

Language: Spanish (Español)

La rosa
no buscaba la aurora:
casi eterna en su ramo,
buscaba otra cosa.

La rosa,
no buscaba ni ciencia ni sombra:
confín de carne y sueño,
buscaba otra cosa.

La rosa,
no buscaba la rosa.
Inmóvil por el cielo
buscaba otra cosa.

La rose/ ne cherchait pas l'aurore

Language: French (Français) after the Spanish (Español)

La rose
ne cherchait pas l'aurore :
presque éternelle sur sa branche,
elle cherchait autre chose.

La rose
ne cherchait ni science ni ombre :
à la frontière de la chair et du rêve
elle cherchait autre chose.

La rose
ne cherchait pas la rose.
Immobile dans le ciel
elle cherchait autre chose.
